Mushroom Hunts in the Forest

  • Learning stories
  • Curiosity

When going on our mushroom hunts in the forest, we always go with an intention in mind. Here are some of the different intentions of our hunts:

-Sketch mushrooms in the forest
-Use clay to shape mushrooms we find
-Check on the growth of the mushrooms we have found previously
-Dig up mushrooms and mycelium to grow in our tub
-Looking for a particular species of mushroom (ex. Fly Agaric, Bedla)
-Learn from an expert such a Ms. Jarka
-Follow the Kindergarten guidebook to see if we can find Dog Stinkhorn mushrooms
-Explore a new area that we have not been before to see if we can find mushrooms
-Find out if mushrooms can grow, even if it is cold outside

Our mushroom journals have gone with us on many mushroom hunts and are filled to the brim with a variety of mushroom sketches.
