Tyler has lead walks for the Hitchcock Center for the Environment and Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture, among others. Join him and learn about foraging for mushrooms in the wild. Tyler will share stories gleaned over his years of interacting with both professional and amateur mycologists.
