Maya was an awesome mushroom guide and inspired a greater curiosity into the world of mushrooms. I would join another ForageSF again!

I was expecting the 3-4 hour class to actually be more of a 3-4 hour class. This was basically 45 minutes of a little bit of info about of mushrooms followed by 2 hours of "hike on your own and find mushrooms". I could have hiked on my own for free, and I am certainly not an expert on finding mushrooms, so I was struggling on my own. It would be like taking swimming lessons an getting a little bit of instruction in the shallow end and then having the instructor tell you ok, now head off on your own and swim.

Maya was extremely knowledgeable and ran a fun and instructive class despite not having a lot of luck due to the weather this year.
