Steve Trudell Steve Trudell, PhD, is a life member of NAMA and currently is Chair of the Literature Committee and a member of the Photography and Education committees. He is author of, and photographer for, Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest (with Joe Ammirati) and Tricholomas of North America: A Mushroom Field Guide (with Alan Bessette, Arleen Bessette, and Bill Roody). Steve has been photographing and identifying mushrooms for over 35 years, and studies their roles in forest nutrient cycling. Ultimately he would like to know why there are so many of them. He has taught classes about mushrooms at the University of Washington, The Evergreen State College, and Santa Barbara Community College, and has been a speaker, workshop leader, or foray mycologist for nearly every mushroom club in western North America.

Dr. Steve Trudell to be foray mycologist
Dr. Steve Trudell is an affiliate professor in the College of Forest Resources and a lecturer in the Biology Department at the University of Washington, and is also the scientific advisor for PSMS. He earned his Ph.D. from the UW's College of Forestry Sciences where his dissertation research explored the use of stable isotope signatures to study the roles of ectomycorrhizal and saprotrophic fungi in nitrogen and carbon cycling in old-growth forests of the Olympic Peninsula. Steve has served as vice president of NAMA and was president of the Pacific Northwest Key Council. He often writes for mycological publications, serves as a foray mycologist, and is invited as a lecturer for mycological societies and other nature groups.
Steve has photographed and identified mushrooms for over 30 years, and has used that experience to co-author "Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest," and his newest book, "Tricholomas of North America: A Mushroom Field Guide". He studies the roles of fungi in forest nutrient cycling, and his interests include the reasons behind and controls on fungal biodiversity. Ultimately he would like to know why there are so many different mushrooms, what they are all doing, and how they fit in the ecosystem.

Fungus is all around us and necessary to the planet, University of Washington mycology professor Steve Trudell said during his annual seminar at the Cedar River Watershed."No fungi, no plants. No plants, no animals," including humans, he said.
But if you know your mushrooms, you could be in for a delectable dinner, and for families, it can be a whole new way to see the state's forests, he said.
"Most adults don't know much about mushroom hunting, so it is something that gives the kids a chance to know just as much as the adults," he said. "Whatever the intent of your hunting, for edible mushrooms or to explore different kinds, mushroom hunting is a fun family activity."
Besides being lower to the ground and having plenty of curiosity, children are usually the best mushroom hunters.
Not many children were traipsing around the Cedar River Watershed with Trudell and watershed educators Oct. 10, but several area residents proved quite successful at finding plenty of types of mushrooms.
It's important to ensure you get as much of the mushroom as possible for identification purposes, Trudell said.
It is really important to identify your mushroom before eating it, as "many people react differently to many mushrooms, as with most types of food, so it is important to remember to not eat anything you can't positively identify," Trudell said.
Once, you've positively identified what fungi you have, take a small taste with your front teeth and taste on the tip of your tongue. If you start to feel nauseous, dizzy, feverish or tingly, spit out the mushroom. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention.
"Don't assume you will always, or even often, be successful," Trudell said.
