Wild Mushrooms 101 Workshop in High Park

There are thousands of mushroom species in eastern North America. These fungi come in all sorts of interesting shapes, sizes and colours. Even their names are unique and intriguing. But how do you tell them apart, know which ones are edible and which ones are toxic, and more?

Join us and popular outdoor educator and avid forager Stephan Lukacic for a deep dive into the science, ecology, and methodology of modern mushroom hunting and identification. This short, intensive workshop is designed to demystify wild mushrooms, giving you a solid foundation on which to build future naturalist skills. Following a thorough and engaging seminar, we’ll hike around High Park to try our hand at identifying wild mushrooms.

This workshop is best suited for adults and teenagers ages 16 and above.
