The Pacific Northwest is the richest region for edible mushrooms in the Western hemisphere. Our edible mushrooms are easy to identify and grow in abundance in Washington nearly year round.

In this illustrated presentation, Daniel Winkler will help you get to know, identify and find these wonderful mushrooms while steering you clear of dangerous look-alikes. You will be advised how to properly collect, carefully transport, safely prepare and reliably store your mushrooms and how to process them for unlocking their medicinal powers. Key in finding prime mushrooms is getting to know their preferred habitat and their seasonality. This seminar is great for hikers or survivalists, or anyone who is just plain curious!

I was a Cur and lived on the street.
Running and hiding, I'd make my retreat.
Eating when hungry was a sweet luxury
But more often than not, it wasn't me.
My ribs pushed through my aged skin,
I didn't realize the trouble I was in.
Then one day, out of the blue
I met a person; not someone I knew.
She took me home on that very day,
Giving me a bath; washing the dirt away.
Having a home and loving company
I knew at last, that I was now free.

I had bladder cancer and was treated so,
That in my mind, I was cancer free.
A follow up procedure a week ago,
Found new growth.
Surgery, will soon be here, no hurry.
My Dr. told me not to worry.
This is my second operation, in a year
And I would like this cancer to disappear.
Am I worried? I say probably so,
But I have other things, I must do
To stay here and look after you.

A right of passage, it was then
To get up early, don your gear,
Get in the car, for dawn is near.
The first day of stream fishing, this year.
We went up the Menashtash Creek, I recall
The water gurgling on rock and stone.
It was quiet, for we were alone.
The ice had formed on the stream edge,
Best fishing then, the first of the season,
No worms or lures, no given reason.
Bait up the hook, cast in the pool,
That was the method and it was cool,
For you as a boy, whose passion to fish,
Was the great fulfillment of his only wish.
Limited out, on this opening day,
Fresh trout on the menu, in early May.
