Coastal Foray and Wild Mushroom Tasting – October 8, 2016
Join us for the first CMS member foray of the season on Saturday, October 8, 2016. We will meet in Eugene and carpool to the Coast to harvest edibles and collect other species for identification.
Pavel Gubanikhin will teach you about fungi families in fall, where they grow and why and how to harvest wild mushrooms in a safe and sustainable manner during a few hours wandering through mixed woodland. Pavel has been hunting mushrooms since he was a child growing up in Russia. He is the CMS treasurer and an amateur mushroom picker. Many of the beautiful photos in the CMS cookbook were provided by Pavel.
After we’ve filled our baskets, Heather Sielicki will fire up the camp stove and give a cooking demo and tasting. Heather designed the CMS cookbook and serves as the CMS webmaster and social media manager.
