Connecticut Foraging Club

We are a foraging club based in New Haven county in Connecticut. We have free group hikes/foraging walks where we explore the woods of Connecticut and share our knowledge of edible plants and mushrooms. We also offer classes for novices to learn mushroom and plant foraging basics.
