Find Colorado’s edible buried treasure with mycologist Graham Steinruck on this gourmet-minded foray.
We’ll let you in a delicious little secret: Colorado is hot on the heels of the Pacific Northwest for best place to hunt for mushrooms in the U.S. And mushroom foraging is experiencing a revival for foodies and nature lovers alike. Feeling patriotic about porcinis yet?
Join mycologist Graham Steinruck for a fun(gi) foraging adventure in some of the Rocky Mountains’ most beautiful forests. Graham is crazy about mushrooms and describes the world of fungi as his life’s passion – and likely his obsession. Graham was destined to teach you how to foray for mushrooms safely.
The mountains near Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs produce delicious mushrooms all season long. Our forests yield varieties like The King, Porcini and Cep, as well as the extremely rare White Porcini, one of the most delicious mushrooms around. We’ll be hunting for porcini; which prized edible you’ll seek varies by the date of your foray.
Notes on Meeting location: As the mushroom locations are 'top secret', we do not publish the final location until 48 hours prior to the foray. Note that the final location will be 30 minutes to 1 hour from the meeting place in Morrison. If you happen to live closer to the meeting location than Morrison, we are happy to have you meet us at the final location.
Disclaimer & Warning: Some mushrooms are poisonous, even deadly. Never, under any circumstance, eat a mushroom that you are not 100% sure is an edible species of fungi.
