Learn about fungi on a Wenatchee River Institute field trip

The Wenatchee River Institute and the Puget Sound Mycological Society are inviting the community to a fall fungi field trip Oct. 30 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wenatchee River Institute, 347 Division St.

The Puget Sound Mycological Society will begin with a safety briefing before taking groups of people out to different locations for fungi foraging and collection. The class will teach the basics of foraging and give participants an idea of the habitat to look for based on the season.

Guided trips will forage for about three hours and the ground walked on may be uneven. There is no guarantee to find good, edible mushrooms. Groups will return to the WRI to have mushrooms identified and for a group potluck.

The workshop is free and limited to 30 participants. Registration is not required but highly recommended to ensure a spot.
