Back to Natives presents Gregg Miller, a wildlife biologist who has been foraging for wild mushrooms for over 30 years, on April 2, from 9 am to noon.



This is an indoor course for beginning mushroom identification. Become familiar with the identification keys in David Arora’s Mushrooms Demystified. The course is designed for the intelligent layperson. We will use commercially grown species to learn various identification characteristics and techniques. Bring any fresh wild mushroom finds to the class.

A copy of Mushrooms Demystified by David Arora is required. Some local libraries have copies. If you plan to hunt/identify mushrooms you will want your own copy. The program will be held at the Santiago Park Nature Center at 600 E. Memory Lane in Santa Ana. For info email us at info@backtonatives.org. The Fee is $15.

  1. What are these mushrooms called? Are they native to Oregon around Roseburg? They are growing like wildfire in our back yard.
