Morel Mushroom Identification Workshop • Douglas County

Friday, Mar 4th, 2016 @ 4-6pm
Dreher 4-H Building, Douglas County Fairgrounds • 2110 Harper • Lawrence, KS • Map

The workshop is intended to help ensure that wild harvested mushrooms sold as morels in the state of Kansas are safe to consume. Current regulations under KDA’s Food Safety and Lodging program require that mushrooms picked in the wild for sale must be individually inspected for safety by an approved mushroom identification expert. Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be recognized as morel identification experts in order to meet this regulation. This is a three-year certification.

The course is free of charge and open to the public. Pre-registration for the workshop is required and registration is limited to 90 people, with first preference given to people from Kansas harvesting mushrooms in Kansas.
