Cascades Foray – October 12, 2019

CMS Forays are open only to CMS members, for more information on membership click here.

Join CMS for a foray to the middle Cascades around 2500 feet. Joe Spivack will be the foray leader and Lee Yamada will assist.  LCC students will also be along to document mushrooms in INaturalist for the CMS MLCO project.

Joe Spivack has been collecting and eating wild fungi since 1983. He has taught courses on wild mushrooms at Lane Community College and has given mushroom talks and walks at the Yachats Mushroom Festival for many years.  Joe has been a dedicated member of CMS since its inception. He is a past Board Member, volunteers his time and talents as an Expert IDer for the annual Mushroom Festival, and often leads forays.

Lee Yamada has a long history of mushroom foraging, much of which has been with David Arora, author of the very popular books “All that the Rain Promises”, and “Mushrooms Demystified”.  He was an active member of the Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz for many years and organized the annual Santa Cruz Fungus Fair for over 10 years.  CMS was overjoyed when Lee and his wife Phyllis made their way to Eugene in 2017. It did not take him long to find CMS and join the CMS Board
