For the first time ever, Shaggy Jack is running a Spring Mushroom Foraging class, focusing on edible and medicinal mushrooms that commonly fruit during the spring. Included in this special spring mushroom class is:

1. Video – Full video of the 2021 Mushroom Foraging For Beginners class. The video is 4 hours long, and students who have not taken the Beginners class are encouraged to watch the first 90 minutes before joining the Spring Mushroom Foraging class in order to get a basic understanding of mushroom biology and ecology, and how to correctly identify mushrooms.

2. Live Class – The second part will be a 1.5 hour live class at Shaggy Jack’s in Gibsons. You will learn about which species of mushrooms are available on the West Coast in spring. Class starts at 10:00 am.

3. Forest Foraging Walk – The third part of the class will be a 90-minute forest foraging walk near Gibsons. We will look for oysters, turkey tails and other spring mushrooms you may bring home and try out.  Forest Walk starts at 12:00 pm.


$65 – Full Class – Anybody who has not previously taken the Wild Mushroom Foraging For Beginners class has to take the full class which includes the Beginners video. Students who watch the video will be considered Graduates who will get discounts on taking Fall mushroom walks.

$45 – Graduate – Live Class + Forest Walk – This pricing is available for any student who has previously taken the Mushroom Foraging For Beginners class.

$25 – Graduate – Forest Walk only – If you are a confident mushroom forager who knows what species to look for in Spring, this option is available for anybody who has taken the Mushroom Foraging For Beginners class.
