Wisconsin’s woods are home to a huge variety of wild mushrooms, but do you know which ones to avoid? Tavis Lynch will present a free program on “Poisonous Mushrooms of the Northwoods” at the Mercer Public Library on Friday, May 17th at 1:00 p.m.

Lynch is the owner of Tavis’s Mushrooms, a shiitake, oyster mushroom and wine cap farm in northern Wisconsin also offering wild mushroom identification and supply. He is the author of Mushroom Cultivation: an illustrated guide to growing your own mushrooms at home.

This program is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Mercer Library and ICORE, the Iron County Outdoor Recreation Enthusiasts. For more information, call the library at 715-476-2366.
