Fall Wild Mushroom Show, Saturday October 19th, 12-4 pm Free

Fall is the time when you can find chanterelles, amongst many others.  We will have our annual Fall Wild Mushroom Show on the patio in front of the Northwest Nature Shop to show what mushrooms abound in the fall here in Southern Oregon.  This is THE time to identify what those mushrooms are that pop up in your yard or the ones you see while hiking in the woods.  Bring your sample into the Northwest Nature Shop during the Fall Wild Mushroom Show and Mycologist John Teem will be here to help you identify it.  We will have a variety of locally collected mushrooms on display as well.
