GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL CLASSES IN MUSHROOM IDENTIFICATION, CULTIVATION AND MORE
I am here to help you learn more about mushrooms and the forests they grow in. Mushrooms and fungi play key roles in our bodies and the environments around us. Some of them are incredibly delicious! While there is much ado in the field of mycology, it isn't hard to enjoy a few safe and delicious edibles growing in your yard or region. Fish and Fungi strives to dispel mycophobia (the fear of fungi). I will come to a classroom, yard, or forest near you to help you find, identify and enjoy the mushrooms that grow there.
Live in or visiting SW Colorado or NW New Mexico? Learn about mushrooms in your backyard. Our southern Rocky Mountains, especially those around Durango, Telluride and Pagosa Springs, offer some of the best mushroom hunting in the world. Come foray with us.
Want a classroom experience? I offer primers in mushroom identification, cultivation and basic mycology for students of all ages.
Mushrooms popping up? I will visit your house to tell you what you have. Call me soon though, because they will be gone tomorrow!
