Fungal Fruits of the Forest: Choice Edible Mushrooms of the PNW

2:00 PM – 3:30 PM
Monroe Library


Mushrooms grow in abundance in the Pacific Northwest nearly year-round. Some are poisonous, many have no culinary value, and a select group are some of the best food to enjoy. Mushroom expert Daniel Winkler will help you get to know, identify, and find many great edible mushrooms while steering you clear of dangerous look-a-likes.

Daniel will share insight from his nearly 30 years experience foraging in the PNW and from his new book Fruits of the Forest: A Field Guide to Pacific Northwest Edible Mushrooms.

Daniel Winkler grew up collecting and eating wild mushrooms in the Alps and is sharing his enthusiasm as a mushroom educator, photographer, and guide. Daniel is the author of several mushroom field guides and he organizes mushroom-focused tours with his travel agency MushRoaming.
