    I have been working on this, Lets collaborate on data to find classes etc. I have done research and found there trying to sell something. Now psu or pcc Had something But i let it go. There was a native woman at the cultural center who gave talks on this topic but that was years ago. Thank you.

    I've thought of joining them a couple of times too. The field/foraging trips look interesting.

    Make sure whoever you're learning from is an expert and make sure you perfect your skills before going out and harvesting on your own. There is no "try a taste and see how you feel in a hour" it's try a taste and feel dead. I am not trying to discourage anyone, just don't pickup a book and think you're good to go, be sure to get some instruction.

    It's not worth the bother they have zilch nutritional value beyond miniscule quantities of amino acids. I used to pick bucket fulls and lost interest.

    True... But dessicated roadkill squirrel might taste a bit better in a mushroom sauce...

    Knowing which wild mushrooms can be eaten safely is a skill that few people have. It would be very advantageous to be able to find food that others pass up in a survival situation. (If things ever get bad enough to force us to forage to survive.)

    I just joined OMS. I haven't been on a field trip or meeting yet, but if anyone else goes, PM me and we can meet up there.
