Travis Cornwell and Scott Koch will discuss the local mushrooms that you might find while out hiking around on the Mesa, the mushroom life cycle, as well as how to forage for your own local mushrooms. There will also be an in-depth talk about what mushrooms do for our environment and how we can use them to our advantage to help the planet.

Travis Cornwell started the Western Slope Fungophiles a few years back to end the fear of fungi we have in this country. He has been hunting local mushrooms for 7 years and spends most of every August on the Mesa staring at the ground looking for fungi. He is a self-taught mushroom hunter, who enjoys giving the average person confidence to go out themselves and explore hunting on their own.

Scott Koch is a lifelong fungi researcher and is one of the few people in our State certified to sell wild foraged mushrooms. He is also well skilled in the use of fungi in the landscape for remediation or permaculture applications.
