Upcoming Events for November


November 10th

CANCELLED BECAUSE OF WEATHER.

Fried Chicken Mushroom

Another prevalent fungi of Late Autumn is the Fried Chicken Mushroom. Growing in clusters on the forest floor the Fried Chicken is known for its delicate texture and mildly sweet taste. Yet another compliment to any dish that calls for mushrooms.

Join us on trails in and around Stratford as we hunt for these along with Fall Oysters, Velvet Foots, Lepista Irinas, Pear Shaped Puffballs and Fawn Mushrooms.

Start time: 10:00 am
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person


November 11th

8 tickets available.

Fall Oysters

Unlike its Summer counterpart the Fall Oyster is quite meaty and manages to cling to dead hardwood for weeks. These Oysters come in three colours, metalic grey, yellow/tan and, believe it or not, olive green. Because they arrive so late in the season they have no real invaders. No worms, no bugs. Another great mushroom for soups, stews and risotto. We find these growing in well shaded hardwood forests with a mix of conifers and hardwoods. We will also be foraging for Velvet Foots, Fawns and Lepista Irina mushrooms as well as Gem Studded Puffballs.

Start time: 10:30 am. Duration: approx. 3hrs
Where: Steckle Woods, Kitchener
Cost: $35.00/person


November 16th

8 tickets available.

The Common Laccaria

These smallish dark brown mushrooms can be found scattered under pines in large numbers mixed in with Fawns, Blewits and Lepista Irinas.

Late Autumn trails continue to offer a variety of fungi. Why not join us beautiful trails in and around Stratford for a crisp walk in Nature.

Start time: 10:00 am
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person


November 17th

Purple Gilled Laccaria

Beside the Blewit another striking mushroom is the Purple Gilled Laccaria. Unlike the Blewit that grows under pines this large species of Laccaria can be found in either opened oak forests or grassy fields. Mixed in with other wild edible mushrooms they make a tasty addition to soups, stews or risotto.
