This foray will focus on how to identify wild mushrooms specific to Whistlers ecosystem like porcini, matsutake, bears-head, hedgehog and more. Our ever-popular trips are easy forest walks with an expert myco-guide through the forest to identify whatever we find and they book up fast! This trip starts with a mushroom tasting and discussion on how to cook different mushrooms with Chef Robin. Then, we’ll drive to the trailhead and go on a short walk to identify mushrooms and study their habitat with the wonderful mycologist Willoughby Arevalo.
