Mushroom picking

Mushroom picking: Introduction and identification

For the pleasure of walking through the forest as much as for the pleasure of eating your harvest, mushroom picking is a great activity. But, for it to stay pleasant, it is important to be able to differentiate an edible from an inedible or poisonous mushroom. At Massif du Sud regional park you can learn the difference with an experienced guide and get acquainted with mycology through a workshop including some theory on the mushrooms, harvesting and tasting.
