Eyfirðingar Forestry Association: Mushroom picking event

Með júlí 19, 2022News

The association’s annual mushroom picking event will be held in the forest of Miðhálsstaðir in Öxnadalur on July 25th, starting at 5:30 p.m.

Our mushroom expert, Guðríður Gyða, will enlighten visitors about life below the forest floor and show how to identify and prepare common edible mushrooms. The goal is to make mushroom picking safe for the novice and for the more advanced to further their skill.

Participants should bring a knife, basket and perhaps a magnifying glass and of course your own reusable mug for the coffee.

Follow directions from the cultural center Melar in Hörgárdalur to the meeting point in the forest.
