One of the best ways to become acquainted with the wondrous world of fungi is to venture out on a foraging expedition.
But even for seasoned mushroom foragers, that is no small feat. First, mushroom picking spots are often safely guarded secrets. Second, it may be difficult to decipher the edible from the poisonous species. And finally, fungi can blend into the forest floor so masterfully, it may be hard to spot them right away. It’s a process that requires patience, but once you tune into the language of nature, you will realize that the ground beneath your feet is truly alive, and fungi literally surrounds us.
So pack your mushroom knife, foraging basket and camera and venture off-road and into the forest. Fantastic Fungi wants to see your best images and most exotic fungal finds.
