5/20/2024 - Mushroom Identification for Beginners on June 18, 2024

On Tuesday, June 18, 2024 from 6-7pm in the Kingsley Room, join us to learn more about mushrooms.

Join The 3 Foragers as they share some of the secrets of the fungal world and teach you how to safely identify wild mushrooms using various available tools and techniques. You'll learn how to use your senses to examine mushrooms for their sights, smells, and tastes, and consider the relationships between fungi and the natural world around us. We will dispel common myths, and discuss mycophagy, the cooking and eating of wild mushrooms.

The 3 Foragers are from southeast Connecticut and officers of Connecticut Valley Mycological Society, as well as avid wild food foragers. The 3 Foragers have been studying, photographing, and eating wild foods since 2005. Their blog, Facebook page, and book all focus on family-friendly, environmentally sustainable harvest of both our native and invasive species of plants, and ways to incorporate these foods into your diet with original recipes.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this program is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. This program is sponsored by the Charles H. and Ella Emery Rutledge Fund. Registration is requested. Please visit the link below for more information and to register.
