Mushroom hunt/ Info Swap at Lake Padden/ east entrace meet at baseball diamond

Free event for anyone who wishes to come and learn. I'll be teaching people how to identify Oyster mushrooms, what you can do with them, one way to cultivate them, and answering any questions I can.  During this event we'll take a short walk into the woods to find Oyster mushrooms, and depending on the size of the group harvest some. Then we'll head back to the baseball diamond where I'll give the "class".  I look forward to seeing you there.
