2020 North to Alaska Foray (by Bill White)

? WHEN: 28-05, September 2020
? WHERE: Sterling, Alaska

Bill and Jerri White are again opening their Alaska Sports Lodge for the highly popular Alaska Foray!

Note: This event is not sponsored by the Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz, but has been hosted for many years by the Whites, longtime FFSC members. We are again sharing it as a courtesy to our membership. Please be safe, both for yourselves and others!.

In view of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, Bill is not planning restaurant meals, favoring instead staying as a closed group on foray and at the lodge. The state of Alaska requires a negative Covid-19 test within three days before arrival to the state. Please be sure to check with Bill as to details about this and any other questions and concerns you may have regarding the trip in general, the Covid-19 situation locally and how details will be handled.


Beautiful scenery, wildlife, fresh seafood and mushrooms! Edibles often found include Boletes, Gypsies, Hedgehogs, Lactarius deliciosus, and Alaska Gold, Phaeolepiota aurea. Fungal diversity can be astonishing, with some forays yielding over 200 species.
