Colorado Mushrooms Field Workshop
July 27, 2017 @ 3:00 am - July 28, 2017 @ 10:00 am UTC-6$95.00 – $145.00
Wander through meadows and forests to discover the hiding places of the elusive mountain mushrooms while learning about the ecology, natural history, and general biology of fungi. With the expert guidance of mycologist Vera Evenson and Dr. Andrew Wilson (Denver Botanic Gardens – Curator and Assistant Curator of Sam Mitchel Herbarium of Fungi), you will learn identification techniques, examine mushrooms in their natural habitats, and appreciate the incredible variety and beauty of Colorado’s fungi. This year’s workshop features two days in the field collecting mushrooms on Thursday and Friday and culminates with collecting, preparing for, and helping with the Mushroom Fair on Friday afternoon. You will learn the most during the Mushroom Fair while helping sort, present and talk about the fungi you have collected in the class.
