Online Morel Certification - Saturday 4/25/20

Recommended Posts

Our only morel course of 2020 was held in Indianapolis, Indiana in March. Due to concerns with COVID-19, we asked elderly participants and those with underlying medical conditions to refrain from attending and we would get them certified online. A number of participants from our morel course in March chose to stay home at that time. The make-up course is slated to take place on a Zoom meeting this Saturday, April 25, 2020. Due to several requests to hold an online course, we are opening up this meeting to additional participants. 

All aspects of the course will remain the same for the online format. The course will take place from 1pm to 5pm. Saturday morning (4/25/2020), you will receive a link and passcode to the Zoom meeting to the email you register with. We will begin with introductions, spend an hour on food safety, spend 1-2 hours on morels, and conclude with a test. The test will be emailed out to participants after the course is complete. By finishing and returning the test, you will have completed the requirements for the course, and we will issue the requisite recommendation to become a morel mushroom identification expert for Indiana. (If we hold the summer wild mushroom course online, the exam will be required to be taken at a testing center.)

Digital copies of course materials will be emailed once you register for the course.

Before Saturday, please go to the link below to join a test meeting, to ensure your camera and microphone are properly configured: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115002262083-Joining-a-test-meeting
