Wild About Mushrooms
Wild About Mushrooms is our domestic wing of MycoVentures, carrying on in the WAM tradition, as initiated by dearly departed friend, partner and WAM founder, Charmoon Richardson. Wild About Mushrooms conducts monthly "1/2 Day Forays" to the Sonoma coast during the fall / winter mushroom season, and Morel Weekend Forays to the Sierra Nevada each spring.
WAM Sonoma Coast Forays, 2016/2017
WAM Foray Leader David Campbell, Julie Schreiber, and the WAM staff, lead a series of wild mushroom forays in the fungally fertile woods along the Sonoma coast. We hunt seasonally available mushrooms, such as King Boletes, Golden Chanterelles, Oyster Mushrooms, Matsutake, Black Trumpets, Hedgehogs, and more. After the hunt, edible mushrooms are expertly prepared by Chef Julie, and we share a fine potluck picnic. Instruction is provided for hunting skills and collecting etiquette, proper handling of wild mushrooms for the table, and the identification characteristics of specimens collected. Each foray is limited to 20 participants.
