Next date: Monday, June 27, 2022 | 06:30 PM to 08:00 PM


There are many types of mushrooms in our region. Some are poisonous, but their ecology is interesting...while others are simply delicious! Learn about them from Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt, from The Mushroom Hunting Foundation, New England's leading mushroom hunting teachers. Using a slideshow of their own incredible all-local photography, Ryan and Emily will explain the basics of wild mushroom science and safety, and focus on the local summer species that are considered "safe for beginners" to cook with. This class will show you inside a whole world of adventure that most people overlook. No registration required for this free program for adults.  
Ryan T. Bouchard is the author and photographer of the groundbreaking book Gourmet Mushrooms of the Northeast 2019. Emily Schmidt also studies our local mushroom species (and wild plants as well), and teaches creative cooking that highlights their many unique flavors. Together, they created The Mushroom Hunting Foundation, and have educated thousands of people about safely enjoying America’s incredible wild mushrooms.
