Ep. 163: Fruits of the Forest - Pacific Northwest Edible Mushrooms (feat. Daniel Winkler)

Today on Mushroom Hour we have the honor of being joined once again by mycological legend Daniel Winkler. A mushroom educator, trained ecologist and award-winning photographer, he grew up collecting mushrooms in the Alps. Daniel has been foraging for more than 25 years in the Pacific Northwest, in addition to South America and High Asia, where he is involved in ethnomycological fieldwork. He served as vice president of the Puget Sound Mycological Society, who recognized his lifetime of service with their Golden Mushroom Award. Through his travel agency, Mushroaming, Daniel runs mushroom-focused eco-tours to Tibet, Bhutan, the Amazon, Colombia and the Austrian Alps as well as in the Pacific Northwest. Today we’re going to dive into his newest field guide “Fruits of the Forest” – A Field Guide to Pacific Northwest Edible Mushrooms.
