Mushroom Foraging Workshop

Thursday August 31 – 9:00am-noon

Spend a day in the field with fungi enthusiast, founder and owner of Boulder Mushroom, Zach Hedstrom. Discover the art of foraging, learn about mushroom ecology, habitat and identification. Participants will have time to make quick field illustrations. Participants should plan to wear hiking clothing and shoes, and be able to walk several miles on moderate hiking trails.

This is a great companion class for the , but it can be taken as a stand alone class too.

The group will meet at trailhead in a forested higher mountain region. We will walk through and look at mushrooms, ecology, identification, slowing down to look and appreciate from an art perspective. There will be field sketching. The day will be guided by our instructor, and then some self directed time for independent work. There will be good parking and a restroom facility. Bring water, good shoes, sunscreen, hat, camera.

Materials for sketching will be provided.
