This new PowerPoint presentation and foraging workshop will focus on techniques used to identify just which fall mushrooms are worth picking!

Our morning presentation will be followed by a lunch break (brown-bag it or head over to Grandma’s Cafe for some down-home Southern cooking), and an afternoon foray in the Ozark National Forest to observe and collect edible, medicinal and other mushrooms/fungi in their natural habitat.

Then we’ll gather our finds, head back to Ozark Folkways for a hands-on ID workshop followed by a tasting session.

Music on the Meadow

Fourth Sunday of every month, 5-7pm

Presented by Winslow Squirrel Jam

Join Winslow Squirrel Jam for an evening of music in the front room at Ozark Folkways. Bring an instrument, a singing voice, or just be prepared to do a little toe-tapping and hand-clapping. The songs are all familiar favorites, and lyrics and chord symbols will be projected on the big screen; everybody is encouraged to join in!

Most of the jammers have only been playing their instruments for a couple of years or less, so this is not a group that is going to intimidate a beginner — at the same time, experienced players will find themselves in a welcoming environment where their ability is recognized and appreciated. There’s something for everybody.

If you like, bring a snack and a beverage; this is not a concert, but rather a gathering of friends and neighbors looking to enjoy an evening of music and good company.

Admission is free to the public, although we encourage you to drop a few bucks in the tip jar to help pay the bills. For more information, just give us a call at 479-634-3791 or email us at info@ozarkfolkways.org.
