Our fellow mushroom fanatics are picking mushrooms in Cali at the NAMA foray!
I just have to go to this some year!
Nice to know someone is picking!
“NAMA FORAY – 2012 – Ruth Ellen’s Amanita muscaria – so gorgeous
it could hold its own during Fashion Week in NYC.”

Finally got to see the movie “Know Your Mushrooms!” starring Larry Evans and Gary Lincoff. Written, Produced & Directed by: Ron Mann
Larry Evans is the fearless leader of the Western Montana Mycological Association and maintains the Fungal Jungal website. (link on home page). Larry has taught me a lot of what I know about mushrooms, and is my mushroom guru.
Gary Lincoff has written several books, and the one I am most familiar with is the National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms
by Gary A. Lincoff, Gary H. Lincoff, Carol Nehring. This was my first mushroom ID book and is a great resource.
The story starts with Larry at the Teluride Mushroom Festival in Colorado. This is a long running get together and there is plenty of characters to entertain and inform.
There is educational portions and comedy thrown in along the way. Complete with question and answer sessions. The scenery and graphics are top notch
I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Mushrooms!
