Jamestown, NY – Mushrooms are popping up all over. There are red ones, green ones, and even purples ones. Some are edible. Some have deadly poison.
On Wednesday evening, September 14, the Audubon Nature Center is presenting Mushroom Mania, a workshop where you can discover the wonderful world of mushrooms and learn more about them.
Mushrooms can be hard to identify. This 6-8 p.m. class will showcase some good field guides, describe what to look for to identify a mushroom, and feature a foray on the trails to find and identify a variety of mushrooms.
Workshop instructor is Garrett Taylor, a dedicated mushroom hunter with years of experience finding and eating mushrooms. He recently discovered a new species of mushroom in Cattaraugus County and continues to expand his mushroom knowledge
