Long-time coastal mushroom hunter Lee Andersen will give a presentation on finding and identifying wild mushrooms on Monday, Nov. 13, in Newport.

In addition to identifying local edible specimens, Andersen will cover how and why to make a spore print and give an introduction to keying specimens.

The presentation, which is free and open to all, will start at 10 am at the Newport 60+ Activity Center, 20 SE 2nd Street.

After the presentation, Andersen will lead a short trip to hunt for edible mushrooms in the area. Participants should bring water, a folding knife and a basket or mesh bag to carry found mushrooms. Plastic bags are not recommended.
