I do custom walks, talks, classes, tours. Just email me at feralkevin (at) gmail (dot) com.
In all my classes, kids under 12 come for free (so as long as they are supervised).

More Mushroom dates to come, be sure to check back regularly for updates. Mushrooms are ephemeral — they are here in a hurry and gone in a hurry, so I can’t always schedule these things far in advance on perfect weekend days. You can also book me for a private walk for your group, December 6 being my first available date. Just email me. Also available most Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Virtual Mushroom Foraging!
Our mushroom season is so short here locally, but often very intense. I feel that with our busy schedules we often miss much (or all) of it. It is especially difficult to find locations suitable to take a large group to find and learn about mushrooms. But many of you out there are seeing them pop up, maybe even going on your own expeditions. So don’t know what kind they are or how to go about further investigation on your own? Call me! We can set up FaceTime or other video conferencing, or a simple call/text and and submission of video or pictures, probably taken from your phone. Best done live in the field, but also possible to do after your foray. When am I available? Off and on, here and there, just like you. If you want to schedule something in advance with me, email me.
If you just happen upon mushrooms without a plan or appointment, as often occurs, just email me immediately at feralkevin (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject “Virtual Mushroom Foraging.” If I am available I will send you a PayPal link to purchase a live consultation as described above as well as my phone number. Three options, 15 min, 30 min, 1 hour ($15, $30, and $50 respectively). If you catch me, great, if not, then maybe next time. Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays are the best.
Wild Edible Plant Foray — December 13 2015, Sunday 10am-12pm (Lafayette Community Park meeting spot, Lafayette) $40 — Join Kevin Feinstein (Feral Kevin) on a guided tour of local edible wild plants in the hills East of the Caldecott tunnel. In this class we are able to actually forage for many things! So not only bring your learning hat, but your bags and clippers, too.
