October Forays Cancelled

In response to the dramatic increase in COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases in Ontario in recent days, the MST's Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the fall foray season in order to help ensure the safety of our members and volunteers.

We know that this is deeply disappointing for all our members, especially new members who have not yet had the chance to participate in a foray.

But the MST isn't going anywhere; at nearly 900 members, we're stronger than ever. We're training a new corps of foray leader volunteers, and we'll be in an excellent position to offer a very strong foray season as soon as it's safe. And we're lining up a great slate of online meetings and courses for the fall and winter.

There's still lots of value in your MST membership, but if you'd prefer to cancel your membership and join again at a better time, we understand. If you joined in August or September, the MST is happy to refund your membership fees without a penalty. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
