Mushroom Foraging Field Trip

This event is no longer on sale.

Friday October 20

10:00 AM  –  2:00 PM

Join us on a search for wild and edible mushrooms led by the Central Oregon Mushroom Club! On this field trip you’ll receive an introduction to fungi diversity and identifying different types of mushrooms in the forest. You’ll also learn how to ‘hunt’ and collect mushrooms, and how to identify mushrooms that are safe for eating.

Field trip is limited to 20 people (adults only, no pets please) and pre-registration is required. Please meet at the Nature Center parking lot by 9:30am. Individuals are responsible for their own transportation to the National Forest.  

If you plan to collect mushrooms you must first obtain a free Forest Products Free Use Permit from the U.S. Forest Service office in Bend. Please bring this permit with you on the field trip. You should also bring a wide-bottomed container (bucket, basket) and a sturdy knife or small garden trowel for mushroom collection.
