Learn all about mushroom identification and wild Florida mushrooms with Fungi Jon! We will show you how to identify with ease. This class includes a full indoor identification workshop with a bonus outdoor mushroom stroll where we’ll see what Florida’s mushroom season has to offer (pending on if wild mushroom growing conditions are met). Anyone with a passion for nature is encouraged to join and learn about the fascinating world of fungi in this comprehensive class.
Students will be introduced to and gain an understanding of mycology concepts, the importance of mushrooms in forest ecosystems, human uses of mushrooms, fungal taxonomy, descriptive terminology, methods of identification, proper collection/preservation techniques, major groups of mushrooms, common genera & species, edible and medicinal mushrooms, toxic and deadly mushrooms, reference resources, mushroom photography, and more. Images of mushrooms from Central Florida will be shown in addition to dried and/or live specimens which will be examined and described by participants. Local reference books, identification tools, and other goods from Fungi Jon will be available for purchase.
