The Pacific Northwest is home to a wealth of fascinating fungi. If you’ve ever been curious about how to identify mushrooms you see, here is your chance! In this class, mushroom enthusiast and avid forager Leah Bendlin will teach the basics of mushroom identification, from key physical features, to habitat and ecological roles. Bring in your own finds for guided practice applying ID processes following the presentation.
This class will be held indoors and masks are required.
About the instructor: Leah Bendlin is a Portland based mushroom and community science enthusiast. She caught the mycology bug after her first outing hunting chanterelles with a friend. She was amazed at the diversity of mushrooms and set out to learn the science of identification. That curiosity proved insatiable, and now, 9 years later, she is an expert taxonomist and delights in teaching others. You can find her on Instagram page @leah_mycelia.
