|Do you go out in the woods, see mushrooms and have no idea what they are? Have you wanted to pick and eat the mushrooms you see but you don't know if they are edible or poisonous? Do you gather with other mushroom enthusiasts and feel that everyone is smarter than you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have the perfect solution.
Each class covers 10 mushrooms in its category. If you attend all 4 classes youíll know 40 mushrooms. We offer optional homework and a test for each class. If you successfully complete these, you will be awarded a beautiful pin for that particular class. Once you earn all 4 pins you will receive the Harry Thiers Certificate for Mushroom Proficiency. A number of people have already been awarded pins and certificates. Their names are below.
Each class will meet at 10:00 AM at Babler State Park Visitorís Center. We will have classroom experience in the morning, then break for lunch (byol). After lunch weíll go into the woods, forage and identify our finds. Donít hesitate to repeat and repeat and repeat a class. Youíll learn more and itís always lots of fun.
Please register for each class with Maxine Stone or Brad Bomanz. Classes are free to all MOMS members.
