Join seasoned mycologist Rick Van de Poll for a colorful tour of the fantastic (and infamous) fungi of theWhite Mountains. Learn to separate the edible from the poisonous, the common from the rare, as well as how to prepare mushrooms for winter consumption long after they have retreated underground.
