Our SLIDESHOW PRESENTATION is great fun, and shows you how it’s done!


“An Introduction to Mushroom Hunting”:  our basic 70-minute class, followed by 20-minute Q&A session.

Our slideshow classes are presented in outdoor pavilions, full auditoriums, or sometimes to just one person, in their living room!  We bring our own projector or flatscreen TV, unless there is a big TV or a projector available for use.   Using gorgeous photography, our basic class “An Introduction to Mushroom Hunting” focuses on some mushrooms that are safe for beginners (we have a different slideshow for each of the 4 seasons); and of course every slideshow covers the crucial background of mushroom science and safety.  Get a blank notebook and write Mushroom Hunting Journal on the cover…you will want to take notes on this presentation!

Fee:  determined on an individual basis.  There is no class size limit for a slideshow event, so you can invite as many people as you want; they could potentially split the cost with you, or you can have it be free to attend.  That is up to you!  As a host of this event, if you decide to charge your own admission fee, we will still collect our fee from you, not from the individual attendees.   Available year-round.

To schedule one, CONTACT US:  send an email to   or you can give us a call (401)595-6143.

The “Introduction” class is the popular choice, focusing on mushrooms that are safe for beginners, and covering all the essentials of the hobby.  However, we offer other slideshow classes too, and they can even be arranged into a custom-designed course series.

Our available specialized slideshow classes are:

“Boletes and Other Intermediate-Level Fungi”

“Mushrooms are the Meat:  Wild Edible Fungi for Vegans and Vegetarians”

“Wild, Wild Mushrooms” (See Children’s Programs in the CLASSES tab above)
