Curious about how to introduce children to the benefits of mushroom hunting? Melany Kahn quells common fears and puts the “us” in mushrooms, by weaving simple education through playful, fungi-finding adventures. It’s never too early to learn, and never too late to start a family interest in mycology. Melany will identify simple ‘beginner’ mushrooms, showing which ones to tackle and how, and discuss the many fungal treasures that are not necessarily edible but are fascinating to children. These range from the beauty of turkey tails to the magic of blue-staining boletes, to stinkhorns (eeew!), to making spore art with gilled mushrooms. The possibilities that the mushroom kingdom offer our kids are endless. The program will be interactive with plenty of room for Q and A through the chat.
