The first time you try a new wild mushroom, it is important that you eat only a small amount. Most wild mushrooms should not be eaten in large quantities since they are difficult to digest. Please consume responsibly. The Hook and it’s partners are not responsible for any adverse reactions brought upon by unknown allergies and/or over consumption. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
