Illinois’ Fall Mushrooms

Submitted by on August 14, 2018 – 8:36 amNo Comment


Chanterelles, IllinoisWhat better way could there be for a Road Trips Foodie to learn about the richness of fall mushrooms in Illinois than by attending the Illinois Mycological Association’s Mushroom Show & Sale.

It takes place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. September 2, 2018, at the Chicago Botanic Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe, Illinois.

The Illinois Mycological Association will stage an exhibition of 50 to 100 varieties of mushroom foraged from area forests. Members will provide information and answer questions about mushrooms and fungi.

There’s a children’s education area and a shop for mushrooms, books, and T-shirts at the show.

Mycology is the study of fungi that explores how humans use them as a source for medicine and food; what dangers they may pose, such as poisoning or infection; and their benefits to natural ecosystems.

Here’s a video about the annual show:
