Autumn arrives and with it the mushroom season. The forests of the Cuenca range mountain hide many secrets and with this route we want you to join us to discover them.
An expert in mycology will show us all the mysteries of mushrooms and fungi that we will find in our path. We will learn curiosities, legends and, especially, uses and edibility of mushrooms and fungi.
We will also show you methods of preparation, collection and conservation…but first of all, we will teach you to differentiate them and know where to look for them. No doubt you will fell in love with the wonderful world of mycology.
The day begin with a short introductory talk by our expert at the meeting point and at 10:30 we get into the searching in the Cuenca mountain range.
During the day different mushroom specimens will be collected and, with the help of our guide, we will learn to know them by name, characteristics, seasonality, growth features, location ... In addition to becoming experts on mycology we will also get to know a lot about botany, uses from the plants of our forests, local legends ... a profitable day for all ages.
