A Brief Introduction to Finding and Identifying Wild Mushrooms

May 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Jim Barg of the NJ Mycological Association will give us a look at what mushrooms are, how they grow, and how beginners can go about starting to identify the mushrooms they find. Jim is a semi-retired graphic designer who is currently employed as a freelance wild food and mushroom forager for several restaurants in the New Jersey/Pennsylvania area. He is a past President of the New Jersey Mycological Association and is one of their veteran mushroom identifiers. He also serves as art director for the Association’s bimonthly newsletter. In addition, Jim is a consultant to the New Jersey Poison Control Center, acting as one of several mushroom identifiers who are called in cases of suspected mushroom poisonings. Jim’s passion for wild fungi and their identification stretches over several decades.
