Mushroom 3: The Genus Russula

MON, APR 25  6:00-9:00 PM
The Genus Russula includes some very beautiful and interesting species of forest mushrooms, and many are very hard to distinguish. Because russulas are typically fairly large, and because they are often brightly colored, amatuer mushroomers are frequently interested in identifying them. We will learn about the edible and toxic species and also look at closely related and similar looking mushrooms. Relationships with trees and other plants and fungi will also be discussed. As a follow-up to the Wild Mushrooms 101 or 201 classes, we can start narrowing our identification searches down as we become familiar with this common group of mushrooms.
