Steph organized for us to take a coastal foraging class with Kevin. We decided to head North early and stopped near where we did the mushroom foraging. We ended up finding two really nice chanterelle mushrooms.
We made it the rest of the way north before the class started, with a short stop by Bovine Bakery in Point Reyes Station. When we got to the spot we noticed that we weren’t the only group to bring old kitty litter containers. They were pretty much perfect because of their size, and the sealable lid.
Kevin did a quick intro and then we headed down the cliff to the spot he likes to use as his classroom. We gathered some red and purple urchin, sea snails, two rock crab, a steamer clam, and lots of mussels. We cooked a few of the mussels right on the beach, which was really nice. We hiked back up the cliff and did our counts before heading out. On the way back we gathered some sea water to keep everything fresh.
