This year we are planning a more extensive Science Sunday program similar to the event we held in 2015. It will be held in Rose barn the day after the main foray. There will be four or five lectures followed by a hands on guided practical session. The topics we plan to cover are a basic introduction to mushroom identification, fungi photography, Bolete identification with the Bolete Filter and an introduction to microscopy. All attendees will also receive a set of three field test chemicals – Ammonia, Potassium Hydroxide and Iron Sulphate which are helpful in identifying boletes and other species of mushrooms. All the specimens we collected during the Cook Forest walk and the main Lincoff foray will be available to work on and identify.
There is a small charge for the event, $20, that covers room rental and the chemical test kits etc. Bring your own lunch! If you want to go beyond foraging for easy to identify species, then Science Sunday has you covered.

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.
