As Autumn come in full force, mushrooms pop out all over. These seasonal mushrooms are sought after by gourmands who appreciate the fine flavors these fungi add to dishes or on its own.
Wild mushrooms can be found in the woods and meadows, and though spotting these tiny morsels is cause for celebration, it is important to remember that not all wild mushrooms are edible, and some are in fact poisonous.
To educate would be foragers, The West Virginia Mushroom Club is hosting a discussion on September 28, 2013 at the Dunbar Branch Library. Included in the session are knowing how to identify wild mushroom, and finding out which ones are poisonous and which are good to eat. Discussion starts at 11:30 am.
