Get off the eaten path with guided wild mushroom hunt

Join a renowned mushroom forager for a guided mushroom hunt from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sunday July 29.

“Stalking the Wild Mushroom” will be led by Alan Muskat, known as the “Mushroom Man.” Muskat demystifies the art of mushroom hunting in Western North Carolina. Learn how to safely find, identify, appreciate, and savor these forest treats on a short, easy walk through a forest in Buncombe County. The group will cook up any edibles found along the way. The outing is sponsored by WNC Alliance, a regional environmental group.

Muskat supplies nearly 400 pounds of mushrooms a year to more than 30 local clients including Biltmore, The Grove Park Inn and The Richmond Hill Inn. Cost is $45 and includes Muskat’s e-book, Wild Mushrooms: A Taste of Enchantment. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 828.258.8737.
