Howdy Mycophiles,

We are so happy to have had some rain before our upcoming foray for our Fungus Fair!

Remember, if you are not a member and would like to participate, you can…

  • come to the foray (members only, so sign up at )
  • go foraging in a woody, wet area and pick some mushrooms
  • bring these to either the pre-day set up on Saturday (where you can help us set up for the fair from 4 – 8))
  • or bring your mushrooms to the ID table early Sunday
  • become a volunteer at the fair – we can still use your help!

For this year’s fair, we have a banger line up as always!!!
