Chanterelle Shindig Foray

August 24 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Join us for the Chanterelle Shindig Foray in beautiful Grand Rapids, MN, on August 24th! This exciting event is perfect for mushroom enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. The day will kick off with a fascinating discussion on mushroom identification and some of the mushrooms we expect to find, led by expert forager and former mushroom Identification  instructor for the University of Minnesota and University of Wisconsin Mike Kempenich, also known as The Gentleman Forager.

After gaining insights into identifying wild mushrooms, we’ll embark on an adventurous foray into the forest, where you’ll have the opportunity to put your new knowledge to the test to find and collect your own wild mushrooms,led byMike and the Gentleman Forager staff.  But the fun doesn’t stop there! We’ll head to a scenic spot in the woods for a unique lunch experience, preparing delicious pizzas using the wild mushrooms we’ve foraged.

To cap off this fantastic day, we’ll gather at Rapids Brewing for a casual Happy Hour. This local brewery offers a full bar, a selection of excellent beers, and a great menu for those who want to snack or enjoy dinner later. It’s the perfect chance to relax, share your foraging stories, and enjoy camaraderie with fellow mushroom enthusiasts.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to connect with nature, learn from one of the most recognized mushroom experts in the country, and indulge in some fantastic food and drinks. Mark your calendars and join us for the Chanterelle Shindig Foray!
