Cascade Mycological Society is pleased to announce that the Fungal Feast is returning! Mark your calendars, we will be celebrating Oregon’s bountiful wild mushroom harvest with the 2013 Fungal Feast on Thursday, February 7 beginning at 6:30 at the NW Youth Corps lodge at 2621 Augusta Street in SE Eugene. Enjoy an exotic wild mushroom banquet, learn secrets to cooking wild mushrooms from our renowned Chef Joseph and his team of Epicurean chefs. In addition to being a delightful meal amongst your fellow mycophiles, this event is a significant fundraiser for CMS. We will be holding a fungal themed raffle and auction.
Entertainment and FUNgal surprises round out the evening. Ticket sales will begin online at cascademyco.org on January 14, and will be limited. In past years this event has sold out quickly.
How you can help :
We are soliciting donations for our raffle and auction at the Fungal Feast! We are seeking diverse items from nature books and photos to maps, tools, gear, outings, restaurant coupons, etc. In the past, some non-material donations have consisted of guided trips. If interested, please look at the auction form which contains directions on how to donate.
There will be a foray the weekend before the Fungal Feast to help collect mushrooms for the dinner, further information may be found here.
Further volunteer opportunities may also be available … stay tuned!
