Seriously folks. If you have ever met Bill Cole (co-proprietor of Nature's Choice), you'll know that he's a bit of a reserved, humble fellow. But behind that charming, good ol' boy exterior he's a living guidebook to the edible flora of the Pacific Northwest and a bloodhound when it comes to hunting those edibles. When I heard that Bill was going to start taking folks out with him last year I told you to jump on the opportunity and well...I'm gonna tell you them same thing this time too. Eighty bucks is a BARGAIN for a day in the woods with Bill. Even if you don't come home with a big bucket of shrooms, you're still guaranteed to fill your noggin with some extremely valuable foraging information, you'll burn a few calories and you'll have a great time doing it. Go on and reserve a spot ASAP before everyone else does.
Here's the official scoop from Nature's Choice:
