2021 Mushroom ID Workshops

Hey there fungal folks!

The South Sound Mushroom Club is excited to be holding another year of Mushroom ID workshops! This year, we'll be meeting at an Olympia city park for a guided mushroom walk then proceeding to an indoor space to further identify our finds and cover essential mycological skills.

The four and a half hour workshops will include a hands-on introduction to:

  • Identification of PNW mushrooms

  • Fungal ecology and where to look for fungi

  • Structures and types of mushrooms

Other topics of discussion include:

  • Edibility & toxicity of local fungi

  • Photographing mushrooms

  • Trees, mosses, other plants, lichens, slime molds and animals

  • Community Science & resources for further exploration

Tickets are $35 per session. Please share with friends and family but keep in mind that it is a members only event.

These events will follow COVID-19 protocols and will be limited to 12 attendees per session. Masks are required and vaccination is strongly encouraged.

More information will be provided to attendees via email the week of the workshops.
