Join us on an excursion into the Blue Mountains to learn about the plants and fungi you can eat from the forest floor.

Jeff will also point out and describe other forest edible plants including huckleberries and thimbleberry. Bring a bucket or rucksack to throw a few mushrooms in and enjoy a day hiking and exploring the Blue Mountains and its bounty!
