    Hi

  4. Barbara Griffiths

    My grown daughters and I are traveling through the PNW in August. We’re very interested in doing a guided foraging trip with an expert. Will you have any groups scheduled then?

    More classes and events please! Any more in June?

    General question: I live in Cornelius, OR (40 min west of Portland proper). When, generally, is Spring Bolete season and WHERE, generally, is a good place to hunt? Elevation recommendations? Is Tillamook State Forest and its Northern Oregon Coast Range an area that may be productive for Boletes? Or, is Mt. Hood’s Cascade range better?

    Any good recommendations for a Calendar that would help an amateur edible mushroom hunter plan, generally, on WHEN to hunt for particular species in our Pacific Northwest? I have several of David Arora’s books, which are GREAT, but I haven’t seen any good tips for WHEN to hunt for certain species… I’d be happy with general advice, like “generally in the month of June you may be able to find the following edibles.

    LOVE your videos and information! Keep it up!
