Mature oaks at Quail Hollow

Although this is not an FFSC event, and it is not free, we enourage everyone to register and to attend a unique all-day mushroom event at Quail Hollow.  There is an introductory lecture on local mushrooms, guided collecting forays into the woods and a hands-on ID workshop. Read on, this is one amazing opportunity to learn, assist in documenting flora, eat Chef Bob Wynn's cooking and to have a great time all in one day.
