Morel Foray – 5/19/2018 – with Pavel & Toby



Join us for a CMS Members Only foray.  We will be holding our annual Morel Foray a little closer to Eugene this year. And, it will be a single day event, rather than a weekend-long outing. Following are the details:

Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018
Location: East side of Cascades – approximately a 2.5-hour drive.
Required mushroom permits: Deschutes National Forest Personal Use Permit (same as Willamette NF permit) – more info here.

CMS Board Member and Treasurer Pavel Gubanikhin will be the foray leader. Pavel started foraging for wild mushrooms at the age of four with his grandparents while growing up in Russia.  When Pavel and his family moved to Eugene from Florida in October 2008, they attended their first Mount Pisgah mushroom show the very next day after coming into town, and have been enjoying mushroom foraging in Oregon ever since. Pavel has been a CMS board member and Treasurer since 2012 and leads CMS mushroom forays annually.

Pavel will be accompanied by Toby Esthay, who provided the 15 pounds of Morels we had for our annual Morel Grill Out. Together, this should be one dynamite team! Toby Esthay is a professional fungi forager. He is widely known to be one of the best Truffle hunters in Oregon along with his Truffle dog Appa. Toby has been interviewed and featured in fungi articles for Orange County Register, Oregon Wine Press and in the web series Munchies Guide to Oregon, and Truffle Hunting Dogs in Oregon.

# of participants is 20, children accompanied by an adult are welcome, no dogs/pets
