LECTURE: IDENTIFYING EDIBLE PENINSULA MUSHROOMS
Presented by REBECCA LEXA, NATURALIST
Fall is a fabulous time for hunting for edible mushrooms on the Long Beach Peninsula! However, concerns about picking the wrong mushrooms keep a lot of people from going out to forage. Master Naturalist Rebecca Lexa will give you the basics of how to identify mushrooms and some of the tools that can help you along the way. You’ll also learn about some of the beginner-friendly edible mushrooms that grow on the peninsula during fall, and some species to avoid, too! Recommended reading rounds out the talk with some suggestions for further resources to make your mushroom hunting forays better–and safer! (Please note there will be NO discussion of Psilocybin in this talk.)

Lecture will be held at the Oysterville Schoolhouse in Oysterville, WA from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
