Join CMS for a foray to the Coast with Chris Melotti. We do have new rules due to COVID-19. A lot fewer persons, no carpooling, masks required, and we will be social distancing whenever we are in a group.
You will be able to forage for mushrooms. But, we are hoping you will be willing to bring your cell phone with you and capture photos of mushrooms for the Virtual Mushroom Display, for our Virtual Mushroom Festival. Friday, October 16th, is the first day of the Mycoblitz event on INaturalist. Watch the video below and check out the Festival Mycoblitz page to learn more.
