Fitchburg State University


2016 marks the 40th Anniversary of the annual Sam Ristich Foray. The Boston Mycological Club will be hosting the Foray at Fitchburg State University in Fitchburg Massachusetts on July 28-31. Our theme will be ” The Role of Fungi in the Ecology of the Forest”. The chief mycologist will be David Hibbett, Professor of Biology at Clark University in Worcester, MA. We will emphasize group learning, rather than individual collecting, and conservation of the biosystem. We also plan to have lectures on the relationship of fungi to the forest’s flora and fauna.

Fitchburg State University is about a nine hour drive from Pittsburgh.

Sometimes the address and location information for a meeting point is not 100% accurate. Some parks and meeting point do not have a street address so it is difficult to program the map to point to the exact location.

We request that no one hunts a walk or foray location for at least two weeks prior to a walk or foray. It is only through your cooperation that we can have successful walks and forays. All walks & forays will be held rain or shine. Come 15-30 min early and socialize. All walks start on time, so be early, if you are late we will already be in the woods. If you are a club member and have already joined our Facebook Group you can find last minute additions or changes there.
