Allow our very own Brent Lambdin to introduce you to mushrooms of the Southeastern United States. This two-hour introductory course will cover the basics of the mushroom life cycles, ecology, and it will familiarize you with a variety of mushrooms that can be found in this region and in Moore Farms Botanical Garden specifically. The class will end with a mushroom walk (conditions permitting) to allow for hands-on experience with the species introduced in class.
