UCSC Nov 18 Local Foray

Greetings Fungus Friends,

Though the rains have been late this year, there may now enough precipitation to precipitate some local mushroom fruitings.  To find out, the FFSC will hold its first local foray this season on Saturday, Nov 18 from 9am to about 12:30pm.  The exact location around the UCSC campus will depend on Calfire prescribed burn activity currently taking place in Marshall fields and in the upper campus area. 


Our objective will be to explore several habitats and to find out what, if anything, is currently coming up. We will be in areas where collecting is permitted, so if any edibles are up, they may be foraged. Expect to do a bit of hiking, since mushrooms may be few and far apart early in the season!


If you are interested in joining the foray, please fill out this Sign Up Form and you will receive an email in a few days with more details.  If you have further questions or if you have any trouble with the form, please contact localforays@ffsc.us.
