It’s Mushroom Festival Time lets readers know how they can get involved with the Mount Pisgah Arboretum Mushroom Festival – collect mushrooms, help set up on Saturday, or staff a CMS booth at the festival. If you are up for more festivals there are actually five Mushroom Festivals or Gatherings in Oregon during the month of October and we tell you when and where they are. Coming in November is a CMS Fall Mushroom Camp. We will tell you the when and where, and how to register.
