Mushroom Walk: Fungi in the Wild

Join us for a mushroom walk in Concord or Lincoln. However dry or unpromising the weather, our tour leader guarantees that we’ll find a minimum of 30 different species. You’ll learn to identify mushrooms both with and without a guidebook, and you’ll also unlearn everything you were ever told about how to distinguish a poisonous from a non-poisonous species. The focus of this walk is scientific, not culinary. The tuition includes the presentation and the walk. The presentation is mandatory. Instructor: Lawrence Millman

In addition to being an Arctic explorer and ethnographer, Lawrence Millman is a mycologist who has studied fungi in such places as Honduras, Greenland, Nantucket, Panama, Western Samoa, and Fresh Pond in Cambridge. With fellow mycologist Bill Neill, he discovered a species in 2006 in New Hampshire that had been considered extinct for almost a hundred years. His guidebook Fascinating Fungi of New England is the first guidebook to New England species; it was written for beginners. Dr. Millman lives in Cambridge.
