There is no limit to the foray size itself.  FFSC members are welcome to stay off site and join us for both the Saturday foray and the Saturday night potluck. You must be a FFSC member for you and your family to attend.  

The Albion Retreat and Learning Center is located just one mile from the seashore, eight miles south of Mendocino, and 28 miles from the Jackson Demonstration Forest, and 60 miles from Salt Point in the valley of an old lumber camp on the Albion River, it has welcomed students and visitors with its rustic charm since 1947. The Albion Retreat and Learning Center is owned and operated by Pacific Union College and offers an ideal base from which to foray in the nearby Jackson Demonstration Forest.  The Mendocino Coast is a bountiful haven for fungal species in any season. The Albion foray focuses on a wide range of fungi, with edibles including boletes, chanterelles, candy caps, matsutake and hedgehogs.   Go here to get your Jackson Demostration Permit.

The Albion Retreat and Learning Center features heated private cabins with private baths and a lovely dining hall with a commercial kitchen. The center serves as our foray base and we utilize the kitchen for meals and our famous Saturday night potluck.
