Once the education portion has been completed, let Shaggy Jack take you on a forest foraging walk to a productive mushroom habitat where you get to apply your newfound identification skills in the field with guidance from an expert. You'll get to take home a variety of edible mushrooms to try out! This excursion is approximately 2.5 hrs.
