Mushroom Foraging In New York State

Self-proclaimed Mushroom Hunter Damien sources mushrooms in Woodstock, NY.

Though he does not claim to be a mycologist, his passion is clear. He is fascinated by their colours and beauty.

He sniffs out Wild Elm Oyster mushrooms. The smell is slightly fishy, hence the name.

There are plenty of Chicken of the Woods, so named due to their texture which resembles cooked chicken breast.

Chanterelles are another of his favourites, often sold in supermarkets, but his are free and plentiful.
