Name: Wild Mushroom Show @ the Yakima Area Arboretum
Date: October 22, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM PDT
Event Description:
Prepare to be AMAZED and make new "fungi" discoveries during the Yakima Valley Mushroom Societies annual Wild Mushroom Show!
 
Find mushrooms shaped like pig's ears or even smelling like fried chicken.  Some will be as small as a grain of rice and others as big as a flat screen TV.
 
Roughly 100 different types of mushrooms will be on display and each will be labeled and categorized as edible, poisonous, or valueless as food.
 
Now is your chance to learn what that vomit-like looking stuff is growing in your lawn. This family friendly event will appeal to people of all ages. 
 
Bring in your own mushrooms for identification by YVMS members during the show. 
 
Mushrooms to be exhibited during the Mushroom Show, as part of the official collection, should be dropped off on Saturday, October 21 from 9am to 5pm in the Jones Center.  Be sure to collect the entire mushroom, including underground parts.  Please be respectful of mushroom habitats.
