Spring Members Mushroom ID Classes (by )


Phil Carpenter will be leading a series of Mushroom Identification classes. Please note that these classes are only open to current paid members, but since the class is free, the membership dues are the only fee for nonmembers.  If your membership has lapsed, it is important to renew it! We will again hold the classes at the Santa Cruz Natural History Museum (the "whale" museum) at 1305 East Cliff Dr. in Santa Cruz on the first and fourth Wednesday evenings of Feb. and March. The dates would therefore be Feb. 3, 24 and March 2, 23. The classes run 7-9 PM each of those dates. 
There is no charge for the class for members and it is not open to non-members.  Come with fresh mushrooms from field or lawn, forest or mountains.These classes are popular and fill up quickly so sign up soon if you would like to be included in the classes. He will take the first 20 people to respond to this email in the order of receipt.  Since there is usually more people who'd like to take the class than there is available space, if you respond, please commit to taking the whole series of classes.

Sorry Classes full

The classes are organized as a hands-on workshop with mushrooms collected and brought to class by the participants. We will once again use the field guide, Mushrooms Demystified by David Arora, as our class "text". Instruction will be given how to use this resource. While many of the mushrooms listed in that book have been changed, the basic descriptions are still valid and informative.
