What a Find!!
Have you ever had the desire to go mushroom foraging? There are several types of edible mushrooms located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Come learn how fun and amazing it can be to discover the hidden jewels of the forest floor. You need to provide your lunch, water, pocket knife, basket (for your mushrooms), wax paper or paper bag and any field guides you may have. Be prepared for moderate hiking, bushwacking, and the potential of poison oak (wear long sleeves and pants). Sign up in advance. Instructor Phil Carpenter is the President of the Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz and will be enlisting the help of another member.
