There’s something fulfilling about getting in touch with your inner hunter-gatherer. Whether its catching fish for a family dinner or making a quick salad with greens from the garden, this primitive instinct continues to lead modern-day wild-game hunters and edible-plant foragers to the bountiful Hudson Valley. But one food, above all others, sends foodies and foragers alike deep into the forest: wild mushrooms.

“Now with the Internet, people are learning about foraging and are growing interested in trying it themselves,” says “Wildman” Steve Brill, a naturalist who’s been leading foraging expeditions around the New York area since 1982. “There’s just more access to information and to networking; many Meetup groups talk online and egg each other on to try new activities. It attracts a lot of different people.”
