Join outdoor enthusiast Jeff Lash as he instructs you on how to identify seasonal wild mushrooms and shares some tips on where to start looking. In addition, you will learn about proper handling techniques for transport, cleaning, consumption and home preservation.

The class will start at the Hunt and Fish Center at 10 a.m. (doors open at 9:30) and will run four to five hours. We will start the day in the classroom and then move to the woods nearby. More time will be spent outdoors than in the classroom.

Cost for the class is $30, which includes lunch.
