Learn about mushrooms with mycologist Gianrico Vasquez
Gianrico Vasquez, a former AFS student in Cook County and a mycologist from Italy, will present a "Fungi Lesson" and talk about the most common edible and poisonous mushrooms found in Cook County during a September 1 class at Cook County High School.
The class will start out in the classroom with a quick overview of picking mushrooms. Then students will head out on a mushroom picking field trip. After the field trip, you will return to the classroom to learn about the mushrooms you have picked.
The class is sponsored by Cook County Community Education, and will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Mianowski Conference Room. There is a $5 per person fee.
