This August 23-26 in the gorgeous Great Lakes and Allegheny foothills we host the first ever:

Deep Creek Mushroom Camp

Facebook event is found through our page!

Our small, group of attendees will be enjoying hundreds of acres of private & state forest and gaining the training and confidence to properly & safely identify wild mushrooms!

You know why? Because Smugtown is bringing some seriously knowledgeable human critters! Rachel Zoller and Leah Bendlin!

In this post ill be talking about Rachel and who she is and why you should be pumped shes coming through with her skills and she even bringing her kids to join the fun!

Smugtown Mushrooms has been gearing up to host incredible people and well-studied mushroom hunter & mycologist Rachel Zoller also known as @yellowelanor !

Rachel has a passion for introducing others to the enchanting and essential world of fungi. She specializes in helping beginners get started in mushroom identification and foraging practices, emphasizing it is as much about ‘what you can learn’ as it is ‘what you can eat’. She is an active member of the Oregon Mycological Society and runs a small business centered around mushrooms, putting together educational programs for families, colleges, libraries, and other community organizations. She has an educational YouTube channel and is currently wrapping up a beginner’s mushroom foraging handbook which will be published by Roost publishing in late 2018. She is also a mama of two (2 years old and 4 years old) and loves watching her boys get excited about mushrooms as they learn to identify things themselves. This naturally leads into wanting to help other families with young children experience mushrooming in safe and rewarding ways.

You can find Rachel at or on Instagram @YellowElanor

Rachel has been running her own channel on Youtube and has had such a great response! You should check her channel!
