The smell of rain is in the air, and you KNOW that means mushrooms aren’t far behind! Charge that GPS, grab your hiking boots and snag a WildCraft Mushroom Foraging Kit! We’ve filled this kit with high-quality gear, designed for mushroom foraging and made to last a lifetime, like our wood-handled, folding pocket knife with brush, mesh bags for preserving your harvest, and weatherproof, Rite in the Rain notebook made locally in Tacoma, WA since 1916. We’ve included an emergency whistle and sturdy metal carabiner compass: because ‘just in case’ is the name of our game! We’ve also included a comprehensive field guide, written by local legend Michael Beug: Mushrooms of Cascadia, alongside our Beginning Foraging NatureBook written in collaboration with myco-educator and Columbia Gorge native, Rachel Zoller. This kit will give you the tools, resources and gear you need to safely and confidently begin your foraging journey!
Our Beginning Foraging: Mushrooms of the Cascades NatureBook contains a complete packing list for a typical 1-day excursion in the PNW forests.
