Edible Mushroom Collecting Walk
with Long Branch School
This course will include walking the woods to find edible mushrooms along with detailed descriptions of habitat and structure of mushrooms. Please contact the school to learn more about the specific location of the walk. David Spahr has collected edible mushrooms for 39 years. He is a member of the Maine Mycological Society and the North American Mycological Assoc. He is on the Maine Mushroom Task Force developing rules for the foraging and sale of wild mushrooms. Every walk bears a different bounty depending on the weather as much as location. The majority of the mushrooms found in nature are often not edible, but learning this element is even more important than knowing which ones to eat. David’s depth of experience really shows in that he is a walking mycological encyclopedia. Required Supply List: Notebook and pen to take notes on your finds is very useful. A GPS may be an even better solution; basket, mesh or other bags, wax or brown paper, knife, bug repellant, hat, water or other refreshment and a snack, glove, waterproof boots (preferred), tall socks you can tuck your pant legs, optional: vest with pockets or backpack, field guide, magnifying glass. Minimum age with adult: 12.
