Festival Foray – Coast – October 19, 2019
CMS Forays are open only to CMS members, for more information on membership click here.
Join CMS for a foray to the Coast to collect for the Mount Pisgah Arboretum Mushroom Festival. Festival Collection forays are all about collecting every different type of species we can find. You may have the opportunity to pick a few edibles along the way, but that is not the focus of the foray. Festival collecting forays are your opportunity to learn a lot more about the diversity of fungi we have here in Oregon. CMS President Cheshire Mayrsohn will lead the foray.
- Date: Saturday, October, 19, 2019
- Location: Coast
- Mushroom permits: None required, 1 gallon is permitted for personal use with no permit.
# of participants is 20, children accompanied by an adult are welcome, no dogs/pets
