This is not your normal “text book” class. Be prepared to get hands on with various fungi, dried & fresh, as you search for identifying clues and learn terminology with an expert. This is a class that will involve all of your senses! Available for your use during class are clipboards, specimens of 5 popular dried fungi, and fresh sensory materials, but at some locations you will need to bring your own chair. We highly recommend taking notes in a designated “fungi notebook”. Note: bring your own chair The City Ranch Inc provides horsemanship to the children of Baltimore city & beyond, and by participating in classes here, it provides Forage Culture the means to improve their space through manual labor, soil maintenance, and removal of invasive species. TERRAIN: As a working horse ranch with a stream and hills, this site is muddy and can have a stream crossing that you’ll need to be very careful for. The water running down the hillsides and natural animal byproducts makes this an excellent mushrooming location with lots of natural mint families, fields of herbs, and tree variations. PARKING & FACILITIES: Weekend classes are encouraged to park across the street at Stirn’s Garage paved area, but if it is full, park in the lower lot or the lower field. Do not park at the stables and white house. There is a port-a-potty in the lower parking lot. WHAT TO BRING: We always recommend dressing for the weather and being prepared to hike a bit outdoors. You should also bring your phone to take pictures with and a notebook. At this site, we specifically recommend waterproof shoes such as rain boots with good tread or waterproof hiking boots. Muck boots are the shoe of choice by the instructors. WHAT ELSE TO KNOW: Volunteer opportunities are plentiful at this non-profit location.
