Wild Mushroom Workshop #2
Join Ian Vair on a wild mushroom journey. Ian will guide us through the wooded trails at Owl’s Head Town Forest and will explain safety parameters, field guide comprehension, ideal growing conditions, and identifying factors. Functional uses including culinary recipes, extraction methods, and medicinal qualities will be discussed. Wear comfortable shoes for hiking in the woods. Some of the forest exploration will go off trail with some rocky and rolling terrain. Bring a water bottle, insect spray and a bag or basket for collecting edible finds. We will meet in the parking lot promptly at 10 am. Space is limited; pre-registration is required.
Owl’s Head Town Forest is located in Dorset. Take Route 30 to Raptor Lane. Drive 0.3 mile on Raptor Lane and then turn left. There is a sign that reads “Hike Dorset… Owl’s Head Town Forest Trailhead & Parking Area 0.4 Mi.”
