30th Annual Mt. Pisgah Arboretum’s Mushroom Festival — Sunday October 30, 2011

30th Annual Mt. Pisgah Arboretum’s Mushroom Festival
October 30, 2011, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m

Cascade Mycological Society co-sponsors this spectacular celebration with Mt. Pisgah Arboretum and Lane Community College. CMS volunteers collect, identify and organize over 300 species of mushrooms in a stunning display of colors, shapes, and sizes. Bring mushroom specimens to have identified at our “Ask an Expert” booth at the show. Visit our “Edible, Poisonous and Lookalikes” display to learn about some mushroom species to enjoy and some others to avoid! And don’t forget to visit the CMS booth, where t-shirts and other goodies will be for sale.

There is something for everyone at the mushroom festival, including hayrides, cider pressing, wine tasting, scarecrow contest, plant sale, craft sale, children’s activities, music, and raffle. Visitors can also take guided tours of the Arboretum to learn about the area’s ecology and history. To learn more, visit MPA’s website.
