Wild Birds Unlimited Warwick Store Events
April 21st The RI Mushroom Hunters
Saturday, 12 - 3 pm
at Wild Birds Unlimited in Warwick
Mushroom hunting actually involves many of the same skills from the world of birding; for example, exploring different habitats, photography, and using books to identify different species in nature. Mushrooms are another great outdoor hobby to enjoy! That's why a local couple is launching a nonprofit called The Mushroom Hunting Foundation, dedicated to teaching Americans how to safely enjoy our edible wild mushrooms.
On April 21st, founders Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt will be in the store, to talk with you about local mushrooms and their seasons. They will have the brand new book Gourmet Mushrooms of the Northeast 2019, and Ryan, the author and photographer, will be signing copies. For a beginner to safely learn the hobby of mushroom hunting, this book was carefully made to be the best possible introduction. It's also full of big, gorgeous pictures (which, amazingly, were taken right here in Rhode Island). Mushrooms are everywhere and you can learn how to find them. Come and see for yourself!
