Early Mushroom Species Identification and Exploration

September 16 @ 10:00 am

Oyster mushroom, Willoughby Nature Reserve

Mushrooms come in different sizes, shapes and colours, and they can appear overnight, covering lawns, meadows, woods, and wetlands. Mushrooms grow on both living and dead matter, and they often form mutually beneficial relationships with other living flora. Some are edible and others are not – learning the differences between the two is important! In this workshop, participants will learn to identify mushrooms by examining spore colour, gill attachment, and growth substrate. We will learn to appreciate not only the incredible variety of early mushrooms, but also the ways in which mushrooms support and communicate within an inter-relational, networking ecosystem.
