Favorite Edible Mushrooms of Sonoma County

January 23, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Favorite Edible Mushrooms of Sonoma County

Have you ever been on a local hike and been stopped by a curious-looking mushroom? Did you think “Could I eat that?”, then you must attend this presentation.  Are you a forager, naturalist, or just plain curious?  Local mushroom hunter, Darvin DeShazer, takes you on a visual journey through some of his favorite local fungi fares and even offer some hints on where to find them.  Join one of the most popular and timeless winter topics in natural history: edible mushrooms.  Get tickets here.

NOTE: No mushroom should be eaten unless it can first be positively identified as edible. Successful identification of mushrooms requires practice and expertise beyond this presentation.

Darvin DeShazer is a retired science teacher with forty years of mushroom hunting. In addition, he is one of the co-founders of SOMA (Sonoma County Mycological Association) and creator of SOMA Camp, which is the fundraiser for his scholarship program. His love for hunting mushrooms has resulted in over 10,000 color photos of fungi. He also contributed to the popular book ‘100 Edible Mushrooms’.

Finally, make this event part of your Wine Country adventure while staying at any of our Luxurv Vacation Homes local to Sonoma County.
