Truffles of the Siskiyous
November 20, 2021 @ 9:00 am - November 21, 2021 @ 5:00 pm$165.00
Truffles are highly evolved mushrooms that have adapted for survival by “going underground,” where they often go unnoticed. In a series of labs, lectures, and field trips, you’ll discover where to look for truffles, how to identify them by sight, smell and under the microscope, as well as their important ecological roles in mycorrhizal networks. Nearly 400 different types of truffles are known to exist in Oregon, and many species are found in the diverse Siskiyou bioregion. Ages 16+ welcome.
