illinois_glencoe_cbg_mushroomRoad Trips Foodies who want to hone their skills at recognizing edible mushrooms should plan to swing by the annual show and sale of the Illinois Mycological Association at the Chicago Botanic Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe, Illinois.

On view from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. September 6, 2015, will be 50 to 100 varieties of mushrooms foraged from area forests.

Association members will provide information and answer questions regarding mushrooms and fungi. A children’s education area is available, and mushrooms, books, and T-shirts will be for sale.

Mycology is the study of fungi and their use to humans as a source for medicine and food and their benefits to natural ecosystems — not to mention their dangers (such as poisoning or infection).
