CMS Weekend Morel Foray Registration Form
Join Cheshire Mayrsohn for a mushroom collection foray at a relatively low elevation in the Cascade foothills, within 45 miles of Eugene. We will meet at 10 a.m. and plan to be back by mid-afternoon.
We’re hoping for hedgehogs, winter chanterelles and black trumpets, and good weather. Terrain will be moderate, no steep climbs required to get to mushrooms but the trail is narrow in spots. Projected range is under 2 miles. Mushroom permits required. The permit you got last fall is now expired. Please get your 2015 mushroom permit from the Forest Service at 3106 Pierce Parkway in Springfield 8-4:30 Monday thru Friday or any other Forest Service office.
Detailed meet up information and location details will be emailed to you upon receipt of your registration form. This foray is limited to the first 18 people to sign up. Members only, no guests, no dogs.
No more registrations will be accepted at this time. You may sign up to wait list by sending a message to email@example.com and we will notify you of any open spaces.
The Cascade Mycological Society is seeking a Foray Coordinator for the 2015 mushroom season.
The Foray Coordinator is the person who coordinates the details for each CMS foray including selecting the date/time/location, recruiting co-leaders, handing foray registrations, and conducting follow up.
Selects Location, Date and Time for the Foray
Together with the CMS Board and/or experienced CMS members, the Foray Coordinator selects a fruitful location and date/time for mushroom education and collection and arranges all necessary access permission to public or private lands in advance of the trip.
Because of the changing Oregon weather, it is may be best to schedule the date/time and meeting location and then select the location of the actual foray a day before the meeting to ensure the best spot. If possible, s/he plans alternate sites in case weather conditions (snow, freezing temperatures, drought, etc.) make the planned trip unsafe or unproductive for mushrooming.
Depending on the nature of the foray, the Foray Coordinator recruits leaders to assist at the foray. It is recommended to have one leader for each 15 participants. In the case of a culinary foray, a helper is may also needed to assist the camp stove cook.
Handling Foray Registrations
The Foray Coordinator works with the webmaster to have online registration forms made available for every foray and is the primary contact for all foray registrants, answering questions and sending out reminders.
The Foray Coordinator solicits feedback from participants after the foray and collects pictures for our photo album.
