Front Porch: Learn about mushrooms at class Wednesday on Camano

All about mushrooms

Learn about common mushrooms in the Northwest garden and neighborhood, both edible and inedible, and how they interact with trees and plants including how they grow, where they grow and tools and resources for identification. The class is planned at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Camano Multipurpose Center (blue building), 141 E. Camano Drive. Scott Chase, WSU Shore Stewards coordinator, Island County, will provide mushroom tips. The presentation is part of a public education series hosted by the Camano Wildlife Habitat Project.
