Karen Croyle, a founding member of the Central PA Mushroom Club, will talk about how to safely collect fungi for the table. Karen knows where to look for mushrooms and will help you learn how to identify the ones you find, which ones are edible, and which are toxic. Karen often speaks at state parks and other venues to promote the understanding of fungi. She was an apprentice to Dr. Barrie Overton at Lehigh University, and has been collecting mushrooms for the table since childhood.
