Episode 24- Identifying New Mushrooms with Orion Aon


For this week’s podcast, we bring Orion Aon back on to talk about identifying new mushrooms. Orion is the creator of Forage Colorado and has helped tons of people identify unknown mushrooms through social media. We pick his brain about how he is able to narrow down an unknown mushroom to a specific genus or species. We talk about how to use a field guide, what kind of features to look for on different mushrooms, some of the subtle differences you may come across, and tons of online resources that you can use to your advantage. If you like the podcast, be sure to like Field to Table Outdoors on Facebook and @fieldtotableoutdoors on Instagram.
