Join Audubon Society of Rhode Island at Powder Mill Ledges Wildlife Refuge in Smithfield for a wild mushroom extravaganza and learn how to identify the various mushrooms that grow in our area, including the edible ones. Begin with an introductory lecture with wild mushrooms on display that were collected from other areas. Next venture out with an Audubon guide for a hike to find mushrooms growing in the wild. Then sample some tasty dishes that are prepared using a variety of cultivated “wild“ mushrooms. Please note that collecting mushrooms on Audubon property is prohibited.
This program is appropriate for ages 16 and up. Registration is required.
Program fee: $30/member; $35/non-member. Ages: 16+. Register online at Take Mystery out of Mushrooming at this link here. Indicating your attendance on either Meetup or Facebook does not reserve your spot – you must contact Audubon directly. Don’t be disappointed, sign up early! Registration deadline is September 15th at 5 pm.
