Summer Mushroom Hunting in Rhode Island

Summer Mushroom Hunting in Rhode Island

There are many types of mushrooms in our region. Some are poisonous, but their ecology is interesting...while others are simply delicious!

Learn about them from Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt, New England's leading mushroom hunting teachers. Using a slideshow of their own incredible all-local photography, Ryan and Emily will explain the basics of wild mushroom science and safety, and focus on the local summer species that are considered "safe for beginners" to cook with.

This class will show you inside a whole world of adventure that most people overlook. Join us next week for Part 2 when we take a guided walk to hunt for mushrooms on the monastery grounds!
