Quick Start Mushroom Foray

***Posted for for Informational Purposes Only - Open to MSSF members only - Please use comments section for arranging car pools***

New to mushrooming? This foray is for you. We will look for mushrooms along Sunset Blvd and GG Park in San Francisco concentrating on observing and recording field characters useful for identifying the various families, genera and species of local fungi. Space is limited, so make a reservation. The foray is for MSSF members only.

You must join MSSF if you have not already and sign up for the foray through them: http://www.mssf.org/

They will not let you attend otherwise!

    I decided to attend the 39th Annual Santa Cruz Fungus Fair instead. Have fun everyone!

    Only heavy rain will postpone. MSSF education chair Lisa Gorman has volunteered to help out with the group. For those who have not attended a foray before here are some tips on things to bring.
    1. A small trowel or knife to insure we get the whole mushroom & a little of the substrate.
    2. Wax paper to wrap the mushrooms in for closer examination later (Whole Foods has wax paper bags).
    3. Copies of the Quick Start Guide, a pencil & a field guide for mushrooms if you have one.
    4. A basket, paper bag, or back pack to carry things around in.
    5. Clothing & shoes appropriate for the weather.
    We will break up into a couple of groups & walk either along pathways & meadows in GGPark or along Sunset Blvd for an hour or more. On returning to the cars we will lay out & summarize what we have found. Those interested can continue the discussion at a nearby coffee shop for hot drinks & food.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
