Course Description

Let's take a journey into the world of the fantastic fungus known as the morel mushroom. Once we lace up our hiking boots we will head into the deep woods of Northern Michigan to learn about this mushroom. Next, we will head on down to the festivities down at Boyne City's Morel Festival. Once we have become experts on the Morel we will create an ePub book of this elusive mushroom.

Fantastic Fungi Report

Fantastic Fungi is an awesome course! It has lots of super fun things to do in it like videos and books. It tells you lots of great facts about hunting morels and where to find them, it also tells which mushroom you can eat and can't eat. This is a great course you all should get it.
