Fall Fungi Field Trip with Puget Sound Mycological Society

October 30 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm


Fall mushroom season is here! Wenatchee River Institute and Puget Sound Mycological Society are coming together to host a fall fungi field trip.
The day will begin at the Wenatchee River Institute with a meeting to set the scene and provide a safety briefing. PSMS guides will take groups of people out to different locations for fungi foraging and collection. There is no guarantee you’ll find good edible mushrooms, of course, but you will learn the basics and have an idea of the habitat to look for, based on the season. The guided trips will be out foraging for about 3 hours. Groups will return to WRI to have mushrooms identified. A group potluck will close the day.

Individuals who prefer a guided experience may sign up for one, until groups are full.

-Please dress for changing fall weather: boots, rain gear, appropriate clothing
-snacks and water.
