MDC Hosting Online Mushroom Hunting Workshop This Month

An online mushroom hunting workshop is set for later this month.

Join the Missouri Department of Conservation for a “Wild Webcast on Mushroom Hunting” Wednesday, April 21, from noon to 1 p.m. to learn about varieties of edible mushrooms found growing wild in Missouri, where to find them, and how to prepare them.

You will also get important information on how to identify and avoid the many poisonous kinds of Missouri mushrooms – including the deadly False Morel.

MDC scientist and mushroom expert Malissa Briggler will share her expertise and insights on mushroom hunting and how to find and identify both edible and poisonous mushrooms.

She will also offer cooking tips and answer participant questions.

Participants will be emailed a registration confirmation and instructions for joining the live webcast on April 21 at noon to 1 p.m.
