Mushroom Walk: Fungi in the Wild *In-Person & Offsite*

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. The instructor will tell you the location during the Friday presentation. Instructor: Lawrence Millman

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.
