Mushrooms come in an amazing variety of forms and play many roles in the environment. Sometimes we see them and most times we don’t! This class will begin with an overview of the fungi kingdom, followed by a stroll in the field to observe and collect a variety of samples. Returning to the classroom, you’ll learn how to closely examine your fungi findings and identify them using field guides.

Instructor George Riner began his fascination with mushrooms in New England in the early 1990’s and served as President of the Boston Mycological Club from 2001-2006. Since moving  to the Santa Rosa area in 2008, George has been active in the Sonoma County Mycological Association  and leads mushroom walks throughout Sonoma County. This class will primarily take place in the field and will include a moderate hike of 1-3 miles at a slow pace.
