We are gearing up for other fabulous Fungus Foray (our 16th Annual) and Wild Mushroom Expo (the 3rd Annual)!
The Foray is not only a wonderful way to spend a day out in the woods with friends - the mushrooms collected are actually classified, documented, and the data shared with interested scientific bodies and agencies. Last year alone, 225 species were collected and identified. How cool is that?
The Expo follows up the Foray with mushroom displays and a full day of lectures and classes about these amazing and varied fungi. There will even be a mushroom dyeing demonstration! All things mushroom will be featured, from soup to shirts to books and art. Stay tuned as we gather together the area's top mycologists for this fun, fabulous, fascinating weekend!
If you're interested in volunteering for either or both days, please email firstname.lastname@example.org! We can't do it without you...
