Kootenai River Mushroom Club to meet

August 5, 2022

Interested in learning how to safely forage for wild mushrooms in North Idaho? The Kootenai River Mushroom Club will present a free class at 6 p.m. Tuesday, August 23, in the Ktunaxa Room at the Kootenai River Inn and Casino. Art Church, a local mushroom expert, will teach you how to safely identify edible mushrooms that can be found here -- approximately 40 different kinds have been identified!

Portions of a DVD by expert Taylor Lockwood, "The Good, the Bad, and the Deadly: Knowing the Poisonous Mushrooms for Mushroom Hunters, Chefs, Parents, Pet Owners & Medical Professionals," will be shown and discussed.

A list of resources for identifying wild mushrooms will be provided.

This class is a prerequisite to participation in a foraging outing with the Kootenai River Mushroom Club. The club provides educational gatherings throughout the year, including foraging trips during mushroom season. Membership is $25 per year for individuals and $35 per year for families.

To register or for more information, please email kootenairivermushrooms@gmail.com. Please comment "attending" so organizers will have a seat count.
