Mushrooms are great on salads and in pasta sauce, but how do these funny little dudes actually work? The Illinois Mycological Association Mushroom Show & Sale will teach you and your little botanist how to hunt and cook this very important fungi. Learn about their environmental skills in recycling, channeling water and bringing food to the trees. If you’re super impressed by the end of the show, you can purchase some mushrooms to take home.
