    IL-Sept 20-22, Channahon State Park, Fungi Foray Hang

    Hey everyone I'm really excited to try something new and would love to have you join in the adventure. After discovering that mushroom hunting was legal in state parks I thought of our hometown favorite Channahon State Park and Gedhard State Park. I would like to have a group hang near McKinley Woods Forest Preserve in our usual location and lead a mushroom hunt on Saturday morning. We will be looking specifically for Hen of the Woods (maitake / Grifola frondosa) and Chicken of the Woods (sulfer shelf/ Laetiporus sulphureus) and then incorporate our finds into a Saturday night feast. Vegan friendly but let's go ahead and add meat

    Let's review the details:

    When? September 20-22, 2019


    Where?Channahon, IL Directions are Here <---

    How Much? $6/Person/Night. Firewood donations are appreciated but not mandatory

    What's up with the food situation? Bring your own, bring something to share, starve, I don't really care but I'll be creating mushroom dishes Saturday Night with our fresh bounty (yes, I'm counting chickens before they hatch)

    Where do I sign up? Right Here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing


    I hope to see you there and pray for good weather!

    Get lost in the woods and find yourself again. A vacation,to me, is working with your hands and surviving because of the fruits of your labor. In the business world I teach;in the natural world I learn.

    What a great idea, BananaHammock!

    I love learning about wild edibles and foraging for food. I'm bummed I won't be able to make it! It would have been great to see you again!

    I'll have to see on this one.... I'll have just gotten back from a week in the BWCA the weekend prior. My presence may be requested on the home front.

    I'll keep it in mind...
    Pretty well out of bridges and getting busy. So more than likely stuck sewing rather than hanging.
