Qué harás

We’ll meet at UC Santa Cruz’s Core West parking structure. I’ll introduce you to the local area and explain our goals for the day. I’ll have my favorite field guides available for you to peruse as well as real specimens of local mushrooms. I’ll explain the intricacies of mushroom identification and hunting safety before we get going. You’ll be able to use the restroom and fill up your water bottle as well. The hike is mild/moderate with some up hill, totaling about 2.5 miles. Guests should be comfortable hiking off pavement.

We will hunt on UCSC’s forested campus, hiking around for roughly 2.5 hours. I will point out the local flora and fauna we come across. I will help you identify the mushrooms we encounter and teach you about the role fungi play in the ecosystem. Hopefully, we will find safe edible or medicinal fungi for you to take home. I will also teach you how to recognize toxic and poisonous species of mushrooms in order to avoid them. You’ll have a lot of fun and walk away with new skills at a minimum. If we’re lucky, you’ll forage some ingredients to cook an impressive dinner later.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee good weather or abundant mushrooms. However, I will do my best to provide the best opportunities. This experience is oriented toward education rather than trophy hunting. All mushroom hunting and consumption is done at your own

I grew up in a fungi-friendly, central European household and have been mushroom hunting independently for most of my life. In the past 6 years, I have become especially intimate with the rhythms of Santa Cruz native fungi. The rainy season on the Redwood Coast can seem dreary but beneath the grey skies, a rainbow of mushrooms is emerging. In this unique microclimate, we are blessed with a wide variety of fungal species to admire, to eat, and, in some cases, to respectfully avoid! I will teach you about the culinary, medicinal, and artistic qualities of our local fungi and their relatives around the world.

Some things to note: this trip is meant to be an educational introduction to mushroom identification and hunting safety. If you are already an experienced hunter, this trip may be too introductory for you.

Donde estarás

We will focus our search around UC Santa Cruz's campus. The sprawling oak and hardwood forests are home to chanterelles, black trumpets, and queen boletes. The pines on campus harbor king boletes and various other choice mushrooms. There are various hikes through campus, and I don't pick the same area twice in a week.

Super fun, great learning experience and we came out with a TON of mushrooms! I'm really looking forward to doing more mushroom foraging in the future.

This was a great experience, educational and fun:) We were even running late and Kristof was kind enough to accommodate, and take us through a mushie filled hike. I don’t get to hike much but i enjoyed the view and had a nice time harvesting and experiencing the cold and beautiful forest. It was freshly wet and smelled amazing! I would definitely recommend booking this experience if you enjoy talking about mushrooms, looking at mushrooms, touching mushrooms, lovingly admiring mushrooms and lastly, eating mushrooms. Mushrooms!!!!!

Kristoff was very accommodating, very friendly, and highly approachable/great conversationalist. We loved his vast knowledge of the world of mushrooms and are considering going again next year. We recommend this experience to and for anyone!
