I am available for private and semi private mushroom/foraging walks and mushroom talks with a PowerPoint show.  I know quite a bit about plant and other foraging as well that will be shared on mushroom walks. I also do mushroom cooking demos and point and shoot mushroom/nature photography instruction. Email or call me for more information.  I do mushroom weekends in conjunction with Le Vatout Bed and Breakfast in Waldoboro Maine. Call LeVatout for arrangements.

My mushroom book Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms of New England and Eastern Canada has been released as of 7-21-09. You can email me for author signed copies or pay $20 + $3 (shipping) USD by PayPal using this email address. I also accept checks. Maine residents need to add $1 more for sales tax. Canadian pricing is $20 + $7. It will also be available in book stores and online. That supports the author less well. You can read Amazon customer reviews here.

If you like my photography, I have products like tee shirts, aprons, coffee cups, and other items available here.  A delicious mushroom found throughout the season.
