Nature Revealed

The Gulf Coast region produces a huge variety of mushrooms. Their food value ranges from choice edibles to poisonous. Agaricus, Amanitas, Boletus, Cantharellus, and Polyporus are only a few of the genera that abound in our woods. But what are mushrooms, and how can you distinguish between the different species? In this class, you’ll get an introduction to mycology: the study of mushrooms. Learn what mushrooms are, where to find them, their role in the environment, and how to begin the sometimes complicated process of identifying individual species.
