September Meeting for COMC on Weds. Sept 13.

1 Comment
Rachel ZollerOur next mushroom club meeting will be Weds., Sept. 13 from 6-8 PM at the Environmental Center in Bend.  This month’s presenter is Rachel Zoller, speaking on Mushroom Foraging – what to do and what not to do when hunting for mushrooms.  She will talk about basic id. practices and share her struggles as she searched for answers to identify these puzzling fungi. She has many tips to make this process easier and will soon finish her book for beginners to be published by Roost Books. Rachel is an active member of Portland’s Oregon Mycological Society and leads lectures and mushroom field trips throughout the PNW.  Her workshops often sell out and her popular blogsite is full of videos, photos and info from her mushroom adventures.
Please join us!  If you are lucky enough to find mushrooms, bring them for all of us to see! The first half hour will be social/mushroom identification time.
Save the date!! In October, our club is hosting the first mushroom show in Central Oregon in collaboration with Sunriver Nature Center.  The dates are Oct. 20-21.  If you can help with this exciting event, please let me know.  We will need mushroom gathers and helpers during and after the show.
Meanwhile, do your best rain dance (without the thunder part!)

  1. I could potentially help out with the mushroom show. I have a degree in forest ecology/mycology and have been foraging and cultivating various fungi for about 12 years. Haven’t been as involved in the mycological community in the last few years, but have still been active in foraging/cultivation, and would like to rejoin my fellow mycophiles. I added my email, let me know what type of stuff you might need help with.
