LEADERS BIO: An avid outdoorsman, Nicholas moved to Algonquin Highlands a few years ago to embrace the wilderness he so dearly loves. Experienced in Hiking, Backcountry Camping, Fishing, and, yes, Wild Edible Mushrooms. Nick is not a professional mycologist but was taught from a young age what mushrooms can be eaten, and furthered that knowledge through the years to be able to accurately identify most common edible varieties… as well as what not to eat. The Golden Rule: if you are not 100% sure, don’t eat it.
