Not fishing this weekend? Then check out some fungus!

Family meeting, or the scolding
Mushrooms growing on the forest floor.

The weather is supposed to be crappy and the fishing on Puget Sound has been none to stellar as of late either, so if her you are looking for something to do, why not check out some mushrooms?

You see them when you are walking into your favorite fishing hole, and sometimes in your boat if you don’t use it often enough, but do you know what kind of mushroom they are?

The Snohomish County Mycological Society’s annual mushroom show from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday  October 10th at Floral Hall at Forest Park, 802 E. Mukilteo Blvd., Everett.

They will have more than 150 wild mushroom species on display and you can bring in your own mystery mushrooms and let the experts help you identify them.

There will be demonstrations on dehydration and cultivation, plus sales of wild mushrooms, arts and crafts, T-shirts and books.

Go to for more information or call  425-317-9411.

Update: Want to know what happens when you pick and eat mushrooms and don’t know exactly what they are?  This gal nearly died from eating Death Cap mushrooms this week.
