Edible & Poisonous Fungi of the Smokies
The Smoky Mountains are world-renowned for mushrooms and home to more than 2,000 species.
Here’s a chance to learn about the many kinds of mushrooms and how to identify them by size, shape, and color.
Instructor Whitey Hitchcock will take you on short hikes, and through these field explorations, you will learn about the habitats for mushrooms, toxicology, and the association between fungi and tree roots.
The workshop is designed for beginners, but veterans will also learn something.
