Join Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt for a presentation about the safe, edible, wild mushrooms of our state featuring mushrooms that can be found in the fall.

Few people know how many safe edible mushrooms can be found in our State, or how widely varying their flavors really are. On Tuesday, September 29th at 6pm at the Island Free Library, Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt of Southern New England Mushroom Hunting will give a slideshow presentation about this fascinating hobby.  They will be focusing on safety for beginners and the health and nutritional values of local mushrooms.

Ryan Bouchard is the author of Gourmet Mushrooms of RI, the first book about mushroom hunting in the Ocean State, which they’ll have on hand. Emily Schmidt studies the health and nutritional values of our local mushrooms, as well as the many incredible ways they can be cooked. They educate people about safely hunting for wild mushrooms through their company, Southern New England Mushroom Hunting.

Free and as always, EVERYONE is WELCOME.

Refreshments will be served.
