Gather mushrooms in a PNW forest

We will stroll along mountain trails, often in old growth conifers, enjoying the sights and sounds of the forest. In the fall, a wealth of mushrooms fruit in the evergreen forests of the Cascade Mountains. We will encounter many species and study them in their native environment. We may return with delicious edible mushrooms, but my goals for this experience are to introduce you to the fascinating study of mushrooms, and provide you with a foundation for safe mushroom foraging during a memorable visit to the forest of the Pacific Northwest. For the experienced mycophile, I offer local knowledge and access to prime habitat. Foraging for mushrooms is quite different and more relaxed that hiking to a destination. The moment we enter the forest, we will be at our destination.

I am a retired surgeon. My wife and I had a farm in the Cascade Mountains for many years, where we spent a great deal of time with our children and became avid mushroom foragers. I am a field trip guide for the Puget Sound Mycological Society. (Those trips are for members only and this experience is not sponsored by the Society.) I am a deeply committed environmentalist.

We had an amazing time with Daniel! We lucked out and had a beautiful October day to explore and forage in multiple locations. (Daniel had scouted the locations a few days prior to our visit to see where we could find some specific, interesting mushrooms which was really helpful.) He was incredibly knowledgeable and clearly passionate about mushrooms. He shared a lot of detail about how to stay safe when mushrooming, methods for identification, and taught us about different terminology and habitats in the PNW. He even sent us home with some delicious mushrooms. The small group size was appreciated. I highly recommend this experience. We are planning to do it again next year!

Super fun experience! It was exactly what we had hoped for. We got to learn a lot more about the mushroom world and even got to see a bunch of Aminita Muscaria! 🍄 I would 100% recommend to anyone interested in slightest in mushrooms.

Mycology is fascinating, and Dan really knows his stuff - from fun facts, to history, and even recent events in the scientific community. He is patient, enthusiastic, and friendly which makes for a really fun and engaging experience. We walked away with enough mushrooms to last a few meals and the basic knowledge to continue foraging on our own!

Fascinating and fun from start to finish! We can not imagine a better way to learn about mushrooms. The hands on experience with Dans perfect novice introduction to the topic, guidance in field, and ongoing patience answering all questions (including repetitive ones) was outstanding. Thanks so much Dan!

Could not recommend this more! I’ve been in the PNW my entire life and Daniel made us realize all of the natural bounty we’ve been walking right past for years

This is a truly great experience. Daniel does a great job of building up your knowledge, regardless of how little you know. I walked away with a solid and practical base to continue my learning! I would also note that I really enjoyed Daniels excellent grasp of the scientific angles here, we learned both common and scientific names for our mushrooms, and that really helped tie things together!

    Gästkrav

    Upp till 4 gäster som är 8 år eller äldre kan delta.

    Fler tips

    Bring sunscreen and rain gear. Mushrooms thrive in rainy weather, so be prepared for rain, and also for cold weather since we are likely to be at much higher elevation than Seattle. I recommend you bring a knapsack for your personal belongings.

    Vad man ska ha med sig

    Layered clothing for warm, cool, or wet weather.

    Sturdy footware. Hiking boots are best. Sneakers are OK.
