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.

This non-credit course is offered by the Smoky Mountain Field School, an educational partnership between UT Conferences & Non-Credit Programs and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
