At the Alger Community Hall
18735 Parkview Lane, Alger
This class, taught by Chuck Nafziger and Keith Witter, will cover basic mushroom identification techniques, while focusing on 5 common edibles: chanterelles, oysters, lobsters, shaggy parasols and Agaricus varieties as well as some other lesser known edible varieties. Cooking and conservation will also be covered in this hour and a half long class.
The date is the same as the Bellingham mushroom show. We decided that if we have our class at 11:00-12:00 or 12:30, followed by a short foray to nearby woods, people will still be able to go to the Bellingham Mushroom Show (12:00-5:00, $5 admittance) if they want to buy books, get something identified that we were unsure of, or overload on even more mushrooms.
Class size is limited to 20 people. Please pre-register by emailing Chuck Nafziger at firstname.lastname@example.org. In subject line, please type "registering for mushroom class."
This class is the first in the free Chuckanut Transition Skillshare Series beginning this fall and continuing this winter:
January- Mason bees and other beneficial garden insects
February - Medicinal herb gardens
March - Hand tool sharpening and care/basic carpentry
April - Edible weeds
Skillshare topics were chosen based on the skillshare survey results.
