June 2024 Forays

What is this event?
MSU will be hosting its first set of general forays (guided mushroom walks) in 2024. Sign up can be found below. You must RSVP to join a foray. After a group is filled, registration will close. We will post more forays when they become available throughout the month. Foray announcement dates are not set and can happen anytime.

What should you bring? 
The following items are not required but can be helpful as you're looking for fungi:

  • Basket

  • Wax bags

  • Knife

  • Trowel

  • Small brush

  • Water

  • A snack

  • Sunscreen

  • Layers 

  • Treaded shoes


Who is able to attend?
Forays are MSU-members only events. Not yet a member? Join today!

 

Anything else?

Like all mushroom clubs nowadays, demand from people who want to attend forays is much higher than the supply of people who are able to lead forays. We are currently implementing and workshopping future solutions to educate and empower new leaders and appreciate your patience and understanding that all offerings of the society are run on the volunteer labor of just a handful of dedicated folk. 

 

What can you do?

-RSVP immediately when you see a foray posted. Please refrain from signing up for multiple forays within one month to allow others a chance to participate. 

-Make connections and exchange contact with other members of the society so you have a mushroom hunting buddy to explore new territory with. 

Want to volunteer to lead?

Fantastic! Foray leaders should have experience foraging independently and some knowledge of identification/evaluation of mushrooms. It is not necessary to be an expert, but the more experience you have will enable you to help newer people within the hobby.

 

Here's how you can prepare:
