COASTAL MUSHROOM HIKE
IMG_20140915_131432 (1)Join the First Ways apprentices and professional fungi forager “Mushroom Jordan” Weiss on Saturday September 10 for an adventure in mushroom identification and harvesting hike along Oregon’s north coast! We will be meeting out there at noon in a secret spot Jordan has arranged for us, hike and explore for four or five hours, and then head home with an enviable array of culinary delights!

If you’ve been curious about mushroom foraging, this is truly not-to-miss!

Some of the mushrooms we are likely to collect include:

– Chanterelles(Golden and Rainbow)
– Shrimp russula
– Lobster Mushrooms
– Chicken of the Woods
– Reishi
– Red-belt Polypore
– Artist Conk

And if we are lucky, we may also collect these species:

King Bolete

King Bolete

– Imperial Cat

– King Bolete
– Red-Cracked Cap Bolete
– Oysters
– Prince mushrooms

– Hedgehog mushrooms

The best mushroom field guide, according to Jordan, for our region in the Pacific Northwest is “Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest” by Joe Ammirati and Steve Trudell. He says “All the Rain Promises” by David Arora is a “close second.”

Date: Saturday September 9
Time: Noon to 4 or 5 pm
Where: Secret location on the North Coast, to be disclosed to participants close to date to ensure fruitful harvest
