The mushrooms are coming!
Have you ever been interested in learning more about wild mushrooms? Now is your chance! Local environmental group – Oregon Wild offers mushroom hikes with the ever charming Wendell Wood. It is such a treat to go on one of his guided trips. ( he also leads wildflower hikes in the Spring!)
Emphasis will be on mushroom species identification, and not on collecting for the table. Oregon Wild will also provide a printed list of 250+ mushrooms and fleshy fungus found in the Mt. Hood National Forest this time of year.
Additionally, all participants in Oregon Wild’s fall mushroom hikes are invited to attend a free pre-hike, evening slideshow and mushroom workshop. This lecture (with very cool and unusual mushroom examples) will be held on Tuesday night October 23rd from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
You can help Oregon Wild continue to provide high-quality, guided hikes into Oregon’s spectacular wildlands by making a small donation. Your support helps offset the costs of their hikes program, and ensures we can all continue to explore and enjoy Oregon’s natural heritage. Suggested donation of $5 (Oregon Wild members) and $10 (non members).

It would be helpful if you would identify the mushroom species with the purple cap and the white one below it that you are using as an example of “Emphasis will be on mushroom species identification” workshop you are promoting!
