I recently became a member of the Field Botanists of Ontario and was able to attend my first field trip on the Thanksgiving long weekend. All about mushrooms and other fungi, I knew it was something my dad would be interested in, so I invited him to join me. It was a great, information packed day and I was so happy to share it with my dad.
The full day workshop was led by naturalist and mushroom expert Richard Aaron, on the grounds of the Koffler Scientific Reserve north of Toronto.
The day was divided up into outdoor time, walking through the woods gathering specimens and indoor class time.
Eyelash Cups were adorable!
Turkey tails are really prolific, fairly easy to ID and used medicinally, especially in treating breast cancer.
