What you'll do

We meet at our designated meeting location where we will carpool to the hiking location. The hike is 70% deer trail with your guide who has hiked the bay area for over 10 years. Specific focus will be brought to stop and talk about the native types of plants, we will identify plants, mushrooms, and trees, we will potentially see native orchids or other wildflowers depending on the season, we will stop frequently along this hike to discuss the usefulness of wild foraging foods, and specific focus will be brought to culinary mushroom varieties that bloom in the fall through winter. Seasonally for springtime; water plants and flowers, summer; berries. I know my regular patches, so the actual hike location will vary depending on which week of the year it is. Every hike is seasonally planned with precision around the environmental factors that bring out the best experience. and discussion of foraging skills.

Where you'll be

Take my 10 years of hiking with mycological experts on an adventure through the woods to a new destination each week. We cover a lot of terrain, and follow animal trails to the known mushroom foraging locations I have found. This will be about 4 hours of stop and go hiking. Depending on the season we will take a local trail from Camp Meeker
