Wednesday Hikes with the Gardens - Wild Mushroom Basics


Take a mid week break this summer and explore all that our beautiful state of Colorado has to offer with guided hikes. Learn about ecology through our expert horticulturists and get some fresh air with our Wednesday hike series.


Wild Mushroom Basics

Head into the Rockies with wild mushroom enthusiast Michael Heim for a day trip/mushroom foray and a walk in the woods. You’ll gain a firm handle on the foundations of mushroom identification as you locate a variety of medicinal and edible fungi growing in the wild. You’ll have a chance to discuss mushroom anatomy and learn the tools for contrasting mushrooms that may be poisonous with those that may inspire a dinner party. Bring your field guides and we’ll unlock some nature! You’ll return with a better understanding of what it means to hunt for mushrooms.


Instructor: Michael Heim, visit http://www.ensofarmandforage.com/ for full bio and contact information.


Price: $40, $35 members
