This immersive wilderness experience will bring you into the forest with a single delicious goal in mind: how to identify, find, and harvest wild edible mushrooms!
There are thousands of species of mushrooms in eastern North America, many of which you can find right here in the Haliburton Highlands, and all across Ontario! Many have strange alien-looking shapes that don't resemble the mushrooms you find in the grocery store at all. Some look like heads of cauliflower, some like beautiful corals you’d find under the sea, others like soccer balls, bird’s feathers, or dangling icicles that hang from tree trunks, dead stumps and logs, or that burst up from the forest floor through leaves and dirt.
Mushroom hunting is a fascinating, gratifying, and often misunderstood outdoor activity. Come learn the basics of foraging for these fungal wonders of nature, learn tricks of the forager’s trade, and have a blast doing it!
