Our Annual Echo Summit Foray is scheduled for September 18 - 20 at the California Alpine Club’s Echo Summit Lodge, with breathtaking views overlooking the Tahoe Basin. If thunderstorms cooperate, which they did last year, we will find quite a variety of fungi, including edibles, such as Bol etus and Leccinum. Regardless of the number of mushrooms found, we always have a wonderful time.

There is no limit to the foray size itself.  FFSC members are welcome to stay off site and join us for the foray and meals.  There is also RV parking next to the lodge.  The lodge fills up fast so make sure you reserve your space in advance.  Reservations for the lodge OPEN Now.  You must be a FFSC member for you and your family to attend.
