Leah Bendlin: Common Fall Mushrooms of the PNW (and their lookalikes)
November 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
In this presentation, we will learn some of the most common and memorable mushrooms found in fall in the Pacific Northwest. We will focus especially on common edibles and how to tell them apart from poisonous or just otherwise tricky potential lookalikes, noting particular physical features and habitats that will help you to identify them on your own.
