Instruction for safe, autumn mushroom hunting offered at The Nature Institute

September 24, 2015– Many questions surround the tricks of wild mushroom hunting. For example, which wild mushrooms are edible and harmless, or what recipes will bring out the best flavor? All of these questions will be answered by The Nature Institute (TNI) on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 9 a.m. to noon.

“Foraging for Fungi” will take place at TNI’s Talahi Lodge, located at 2213 South Levis Lane in Godfrey, Ill. TNI education director Patti Brown, education assistant Ramona Puskar and TNI board member Dr. Patrick Dailey will begin this program with an informational presentation. Then, the group will head out for a light hike on TNI trails to identify wild mushrooms. MORE
