Join the Eat Wild team for a morel mushroom foraging adventure during the height of morel season. This is a two day / one night workshop We’ll take you to productive mushroom grounds where you can fill your buckets, baskets and rucksacks full of morels. We’ll teach morel identification and basic orienteering techniques to navigate your foraging terrain and get your mushrooms back to the truck safely! Groups of four will be led by an experienced Eat Wild mentor while we explore the burn in search of morels. Morel Randy, a 20 year mushroom industry pro, will share campfire stories and experiences, and there will be a presentation from a Secwepemc First Nation representative on responsible harvesting within the traditional territory. The weekend will of course include a gourmet morel feast.
Camping will be hosted at Singing Lands Ranch and the workshop will be led by Jody Peck.
You’ll keep all the mushrooms you pick, and you may even want to sell your morels to the local commercial buyers set up in the area. If all goes well you can expect to pick somewhere around 25 pounds of mushrooms.
This workshop will go ahead rain or shine. Please bring rain gear, good hiking boots, bug protection, compass, GPS and camping gear.
Carpooling is awesome to share gas and company. Must have a high clearance vehicle. Let us know if that’s you!
