Ben here again. Sherwin and I went to the Wild Mushroom Show here at Forest Park in Everett on Sunday! There were so many different kinds of mushrooms and fungi there! I went to a great wild mushroom/fungi identification class at this event and I learned a lot about identifying mushrooms, which ones were edible, how they grew, and more! I learned that some mushrooms can even be used to absorb and biodegrade oil and other pollutants that might end up in water! Big thanks to the Snohomish County Mycological Society for hosting this great event! If you’d like to find out more about the group, learn more about fungi in the Pacific Northwest, or become a member please visit their website at http://www.scmsfungi.org. Here are some mushroom pictures we took!
