Wild Mushroom Tours

Whether you’re a modern day druid, an edible wild mushroom connoisseur, or just enjoy a walk in the woods, come out for a day of wild-mushroom hunting in the Okanagan.  As an introduction to mushroom identification, we will visit two local organic farms to find some of the more common, delectable species, and then head out into the wild forests of the Monashee.

Our wild mushroom tours depart Vernon at 9 am and return by 5 pm.

Please note, this is not a mushroom picking tour, but a great way to learn the basics about mushrooms, and how to use an identification guidebook.
