Please join the Friends of the Hopkinton Land Trust as we celebrate RI Land Trust Days on Sunday, September 18th at 1pm at Canonchet Preserve.
What are those weird things that pop up in the woods after the rain? Are you mystified by wild mushrooms? Curious? Scared? Or do they make you hungry?
Join a foraging family who hunt, photograph, identify, and love to eat the fungi in New England for a discussion and walk with the Hopkinton Land Trust & Friends. Dispel myths, learn how to safely identify mushrooms, and discuss mycophagy, the cooking and eating of wild mushrooms, with a forager-led walk. Educational handouts will be provide, bring a notebook, pen, and any specimens from your own yard as well.
The 3 Foragers are a family from southeast Connecticut and members of Connecticut Valley Mycological Society, Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association, and the North American Mycological Association, as well as avid wild food foragers. They write a blog about their adventures and travels and have a newly released book, “Adventures in Edible Plant Foraging: Finding, Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Native and Invasive Wild Plants,” available for purchase directly from the author or at major retailers.
