  • Virtual Talk: Wild Mushrooming in Maine- The Season Ahead

    Greg Marley

    This is the beginning of the mushrooming season in Maine; time to dust your basket, get out the field guide and the tick-repellent clothing, and head back into the woods. Join veteran mushroom forager and local expert Greg Marley on a tour of the best edible mushrooms commonly found in Maine. Marley will also address the mushrooms responsible for the increase in mushroom poisonings in New England.

    This is a social distancing special presentation filled with beautiful photographs and descriptive information of our best “Foolproof” edibles, along with mushroom stories and tall tales to bring the fungi to life in your living room. Bring your curiosity and your questions, and settle back for a great online experience.

    Greg Marley has been collecting, studying, eating, growing, and teaching mushrooms for over 45 years. Marley shares his love of mushrooms through walks, talks, and classes held across New England. He is the author of Mushrooms for Health; Medicinal Secrets of Northeastern Fungi, (Downeast Books, 2009) and the award winning Chanterelle Dreams, Amanita Nightmares; The Love Lore and Mystic of Mushrooms, (Chelsea Green, 2010). As a volunteer mushroom identification consultant to Poison Control Centers across New England, he provides expertise in mushroom poisoning cases. He lives and mushrooms with his family along the coast of Maine.

    The presentation will take place via Zoom. To request a link to this event, please email refdesk@rocklandmaine.gov, or stay tuned to the Library’s Facebook page on the afternoon of April 30.
