We're so excited to share with you the wonders of scouring the wilderness, stalking and scanning the terrain for delicious fungi finds. Please note that Mushroom Hunts embark PROMPTLY at 12pm so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to arrive! Cell service is spotty in the area, so it may be difficult to get in contact Maya if you are running late. NO REFUNDS will be given to latecomers who miss the hunt! Our current plan to get to the best mushroom spots involves some moderate hiking, about 2 miles with some uphill. We will be happy to accommodate various levels of physical fitness; please feel free to contact Maya if you have serious medical conditions, questions or concerns.
ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productThese 3-4 hour classes meet in the Santa Cruz Mountains and cover the basics of wild mushroom foraging. After a brief talk on the ecology of edible mushrooms and mushroom hunting safely and ethically, we'll set you free to forage. You’ll meet back up with Maya to help identify your finds. It's important to note that although you will learn a ton about wild mushroom hunting in this class, we're at the whim of nature, so there are no guarantees you'll find pounds of mushrooms. People in our classes have found Chanterelles, Boletes, Black Trumpet, Morels, Hedgehogs, and lots of other great species of delicious mushrooms.Pass By: Santa Cruz Downtown, Santa Cruz, California
