Mushroom Weekend

Meany Lodge and the Puget Sound Mycological Society proudly present the 2018 Meany Mushroom Weekend.

Check out this year's blog post for more information

 

Join The Mountaineers and Puget Sound Mycological Society at Meany Lodge for the annual Mushroom Weekend. It is the perfect place to learn about foraging in the northwest, using mushrooms in both in food and non-food ways.  You will experience various mushrooms served in a variety of entrees.

 Meet others who enjoy mushrooms as much as you do!  All participants will receive a mushroom kit at the end of the weekend that will include everything you need for a delicious mushroom meal at home. Books and waterproof mushroom identification keys will be available for purchase.

If you are not a member, please fill out a free guest account on our membership page.

Danny also belongs to the PNW Key Council, a group of amateur and professional mycologists and is a co-author of MatchMaker with Ian Gibson, the free PNW mushroom ID program for the PC and MAC. He has a big interest in taxonomy and figuring out where all of the mushrooms fit into the fungal tree of life.
