2016 Spring Foray (by Lety, Anna and Kitty)

This years Spring foray 2016 was fun as usual.   Morels were to be found both in the burns and blonde naturals along the trails by the creek.   We happened up an early flush of Spring Kings as well.   Plenty of spring wildflowers at 4000' feet and higher.   A little rain, a little sun and plenty of good company makes our FFSC forays the events we enjoy.   Both old timers and new enjoyed hunting and eating mushrooms.   Till the next hunt.....

Marshall Field Natural Reserve Foray Report (by )

Soggy Hunters braving the weather
Over 30 foragers braved the weather last Saturday 1/16/2016 for the FFSC foray at Marshall Field – what a great and enthusiastic group of folks!  Thank you to everyone who attended; all of your input, questions, and helping hands made it a fun outing indeed, and thanks to Justin Pierce and Shane Marsh for helping with identification.
 
Although soggy, there was a fair selection of fleshy fungi to be observed...
