Mushroom Walk - Catskill Field Day

The Catskill Field Day is packed with events and we're starting it off with mushroom foraging and breakfast.

Meet us at the forest's edge for a light breakfast and get energized! Then we'll head out for a two-hour foraging walk with experienced mycology educator Erwin Karl to seek and learn all about the local fungi. Bags, baskets, books, and magnifiers will be provided to help us find, photograph, sustainably harvest, and identify mushrooms. We'll learn which mushrooms are edible or medicinal, and how to prepare them, and about the underground network that binds the forest together. Our conversation will answer your questions about indoor and outdoor mushroom cultivation, and the ecological value, historic uses, scientific importance, and future potential of the fungi we find.

There will also be a hog butchery demo with Brushland Eating House; mini-golf, picnic lunch, and podcast popup at Putt Putt Van Winkle; capped off by a celebratory cocktail hour and 3-course dinner back at Brushland Eating House. The entire day benefits Heritage Radio Network and will be amazing.

Tickets are limited for each event!
