Festival Collection Foray – Coast
Join us for a CMS Members Only foray to collect for the Mount Pisgah Arboretum Mushroom Festival display. CMS is known for putting together the largest display of mushrooms identified to species on the west coast! Here is your opportunity to be a part of that display. You may even find a mushroom that has never been displayed at previous festivals – we love new species additions. Or, better yet, you may find a mushroom that is selected for the Best in Show award! Collecting for the mushroom festival is always fun. Yes, you can also pick up a few edibles along the way, but this the time to open your eyes to all the fungi in our forest and fill your basket with the beautiful, the bizarre, and every fungus you can find!
CMS Board President Cheshire Mayrsohn will lead this foray to the coast. Cheshire is a recently retired Botanist for the BLM and has been foraging for edible plants and mushrooms since childhood. Her interest in mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest started when she attended Freeman Rowe’s Biology of Mushrooms class at LCC in 1983. Cheshire leads forays annually for CMS and is a wealth of information about mushrooms and our locals forests.
Longtime CMS Member and CMS Foray expert Glen Neal will co-lead this foray.
