Guided Foray and Mushroom Tasting with Daniel Winkler – Price $30.00 per person.
Take a walk on the wild side with this year’s visiting guest speaker, Daniel Winkler, On Sunday SCSHROOM is offering a guided mushroom foray, accompanied by adventurer and mushroom Guru, Daniel Winkler. This foray will lead you on a hike to find, identify and pick common and delicious examples of our local fungi. Following the foray, we will meet in one of our local community halls to taste some of your finds from 1:30 to 4 pm. We will go, rain or shine, so be prepared for either. Bring hat, gloves, warm clothing in layers, sturdy shoes, a lunch and something to drink. Optional items are a knapsack, basket, knife, walking stick, and camera.
This is always a very popular event and sells out early. The cost is $30 per person, limited to a maximum of 30 participants. Once we reach the maximum number, you can still register to be on our stand -by list in the event of cancellations.
Once registered and have paid for the foray, we will email you where to meet for the Sunday morning. We will inform you on Saturday of our meeting place where the foray will start.
