Introduction to Mushroom Identification with Hunter Le Duc

Wild Mushrooms are something Hunter Le Duc has been interested in since her first foray as a little girl. She was always fascinated by how unusual and diverse the mushrooms were that her father, one of the founding members of the Illinois Mycological Association, would bring home and present to her mother to cook. As a young adult the culinary pull of mushrooms drew her back in, and as an adult Master Naturalist volunteer opportunities once again awakened her to the seemingly endless diversity of mushrooms in Northern Illinois and the rest of the world. In addition to being a member of a handful of Mycological Societies, Hunter is certified as a Wild Mushroom Expert by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
