体验内容

We’ll meet at UC Santa Cruz’s Core West parking structure (free parking on the weekends). I’ll introduce you to the local area and explain our goals for the day. I’ll have my favorite field guides available for you to peruse as well as real specimens of local mushrooms. I’ll explain the intricacies of mushroom identification and hunting safety before we get going. You’ll be able to use the restroom and fill up your water bottle as well.

We will hunt on UCSC’s forested campus, hiking around for roughly 2.5 hours. I will point out the local flora and fauna we come across. I will help you identify the mushrooms we encounter and teach you about the role fungi play in the ecosystem. Hopefully, we will find safe edible or medicinal fungi for you to take home. I will also teach you how to recognize toxic and poisonous species of mushrooms in order to avoid them. You’ll have a lot of fun and walk away with new skills at a minimum. If we’re lucky, you’ll forage some ingredients to cook an impressive dinner later.

Please note: I cannot guarantee good weather or abundant mushrooms. However, I will do my best to provide the best opportunities. This experience is oriented toward education rather than trophy hunting. I will be wearing a mask and following CDC guidelines for group activities.

Other things to note:
All mushroom hunting and consumption is done at your own risk.

I grew up in a fungi-friendly, central European household and have been mushroom hunting independently for most of my life. In the past 6 years, I have become especially intimate with the rhythms of Santa Cruz native fungi. The rainy season on the Redwood Coast can seem dreary but beneath the grey skies, a rainbow of mushrooms is emerging. In this unique microclimate, we are blessed with a wide variety of fungal species to admire, to eat, and, in some cases, to respectfully avoid! I will teach you about the culinary, medicinal, and artistic qualities of our local fungi and their relatives around the world.

Some things to note: this trip is meant to be an educational introduction to mushroom identification and hunting safety. If you are already an experienced hunter, this trip may be too introductory for you.

We will focus our search around UC Santa Cruz's campus. The sprawling oak and hardwood forests are home to chanterelles, black trumpets, and queen boletes. The pines on campus harbor king boletes and various other choice mushrooms. There are various hikes through campus, and I don't pick the same area twice in a week.

    If you are on the fence about booking this experience, please allow me to push you over onto the side of yes! This was the most fun, interesting, educational and delicious Air B&B experience I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy. 10/10 would do it again! Kristof is professional, personable and knowledgeable. An excellent host of an excellent experience.

    Excellent foraging experience with a friendly, knowledgeable host who has years of experience foraging and a degree in biology. I wasn’t expecting to see many mushrooms but we ended finding a great variety of edibles, enough to make us two servings of delicious hand made pasta topped with our prizes. Kristof went above and beyond as a host. He is very knowledgeable and made sure to teach us foraging safety (AKA don’t eat mushroom you cannot identify). Very much recommend!

    We had an amazing time picking mushrooms with Kristoff! We must have seen 20+ species of mushrooms and Kristoff was super knowledgeable about each one and happy to answer our questions about habitat, edibility, cooking methods, etc. Highly recommend!

    Kristoff was helpful and so insightful during our hike. Plenty of interesting facts and obviously well versed on how the mushrooms grow in the area. Learned a bunch!

    Book this experience with Kristof! I’ve done over 10 experiences and this is by far the best. Great knowledge, hands on, friendly host, beautiful location, and great covid procedures - felt safe the entire time!
