2017 Fall Foray Schedule

All forays meet at 9:45 a.m. Please arrive early.

These forays will focus on collecting and identifying common mushrooms and other fungi, including some common edible species. Leaders will direct you to the foray location and help you with the identification of common species, but they are not necessarily experts.

We still need volunteers to lead and co-lead most forays. Without the help of the members these forays may not happen. You don't need experience or strong field identification skills, just a commitment to being present and keeping the foray organized. Please help! Email the foray director at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let us know which forays you can help with.

Foray & Etiquette Notes

Our scheduled spring forays usually take place from early May to the beginning of June, and fall forays from early September to the end of October. The complete schedule of forays, with directions to meeting places, is emailed to members in April or August, and is available online on the foray schedule page.

All foray participants meet by 9:45 am, then head for the foray location. Forays end at about 12:30 — 1:30 pm or later, if you wish to stay for further identification of fungi. Forays are always held rain or shine. Since we may drive some distance from the meeting place to the foray location, please be on time to avoid the disappointment of missing the group. More detailed information is available on how to prepare for forays.

Please note that the MST does not provide transportation to the forays! Members are responsible for arranging their own transportation.
