Springtime offers new opportunities for mushroom enthusiasts. With regular showers and warming soil, mushrooms show up with increasing frequency in both urban areas and forests alike.

This class is an excellent introduction to mushroom foraging. It includes the basics of how mushrooms work, why they are critical to healthy ecosystems, where to find them, the basics of identification, and some common poisonous species.
