Learn how knowing the ecology of wild mushrooms can help you find them. Mushroom identification will be explored in depth, with emphasis on mushroom photography as an important tool. Ryan and Emily will teach you science-based, safe methods to experience the amazing world of wild mushrooms.
Students should bring cameras or phones with ringers off.
