Are you interested in mushroom hunting?Â Â Already a mushroom forger and looking for a new spot in the area?
The Royalton Memorial Library is hosting a class on mushroom foraging beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday, October 24th at the library.
Local avid mushroom forger Sylvia Spain is leading this informational discussion on local mushrooms and where to forage as well as how to start a mushroom bed.
Spain said this class covers the most common edible mushrooms hunters can find specific to Vermont.
Another part of identification is where the mushrooms are located.
â€œDid you find them under an oak tree? Did you find them in the moss? Did you find them in the mulch?â€ she said are common questions to ask when identifying the different types.
