Mushroom Identification for Beginners with The 3 Foragers

Mushroom Identification for Beginners with The 3 Foragers  

Presented by Providence Public Library at Providence Public Library

September 27, 2017

They first came to Providence Public Library (PPL) this spring as part of our On The Table program series and were so popular that we are pleased to welcome back The 3 Foragers for a talk on “Mushroom Identification for Beginners.” The program is free and open. What are those weird things that pop up in the woods after the rain? Are you mystified by wild mushrooms? Curious? Scared? Or do they make you hungry? Join a foraging family who hunt, photograph, identify, and love to eat the fungi in New England for a discussion. They will dispel common myths, learn how to safely identify mushrooms with visual clues and guidebooks, and discuss mycophagy, the cooking and eating of wild mushrooms. The 3 Foragers are from southeast Connecticut and members of Connecticut Valley Mycological Society, Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association, and the North American Mycological Association, as well as avid wild food foragers. They write a blog about their adventures and travels at
