In this online class, local mushroom enthusiast Leah Bendlin will teach the basics of mushroom identification for beginners, including physical features, ecology and anecdotes about mushroom oddities and beauty. Then we’ll take a walk in the Garden to see mushrooms fruiting in their natural habitats and to practice our new ID skills! If they have them, participants are encouraged to bring their own field guides for reference in the field.

When Leah moved to the Pacific Northwest, a friend took her out for a chanterelle hunt. She was so fascinated by them and the abundance of other mushrooms she set out to teach herself – and a chance encounter soon became a life passion. Leah became obsessed with mushroom taxonomy and all the facets that go into the hunt, learning to read the land for signs of treasure. In 2015, she was elected to the board of directors of the Oregon Mycological Society, where she currently also serves as a teacher, speaker and identifier.
