Summer Wild Mushroom Lecture & Ident. Hike w/Greg Mueller & Joe McFarland

Join outdoor writer Joe McFarland and internationally known mycologist Gregory Mueller for an exciting afternoon learning about summertime wild Illinois mushrooms.

The authors of 'Edible Wild Mushrooms of Illinois' will give an approximately 90 minute presentation about summer mushrooms that we are likely to find in our region, how to safely identify them, and how to find them. And then we'll be out the door and into the woods to find and identify mushrooms! Mushroom specimens will be collected for identification and teaching purposes only - but you'll leave the class with the skills and confidence to begin foraging and harvesting on your own.

Following the class you'll have the opportunity to purchase copies of McFarland and Mueller's book for $5 off the list price.

This event is sponsored by the Office of Sustainability, Institute of Environmental Sustainability at Loyola University of Chicago. We are very grateful for their generous support for this event!

Please dress appropriately for a woodlands hike - sturdy shoes, mosquito and sun protection recommended.

Children are welcome with adult supervision. Admission for children age 15 and under is $5 - please pay for them at the door.

    I must say this was just a really engaging lecture. What facinating people I met today. I especially liked the questions from the audience and speakers answers. I really learned so much about mushrooms. Also, everyone was so nice. I wish the time didn't go so fast!

    • Cathy C.

      Katherine, no. The speakers are busy folk coming from hours away so this is a once a year event for us - and with that we're lucky to get them once a year. I'm hoping that they'll do a fall mushroom lecture next year!
