IMA Mushroom Foray: Saturday 27 July 2013

  • July 27, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a hunt for wild mushrooms! Newbies welcome, you can learn as you go from seasoned foragers and professional mycologists.

This foray needs a leader.  You don't need to know the area or be an expert, you just need to count heads and make sure no one is left behind in the woods.  If you're interested contact Foray Coordinator Nessie Van Loan ([masked]) or find him at the next meeting.

Note that IMA forays happen rain or shine. Bring a bag for litter removal and something to protect yourself against ticks and mosquitoes.

IMA foray locations are not posted publicly. Please see the newsletter for directions. If you do not have a copy of the newsletter, make sure you have paid your membership dues.

We now have a page for arranging carpools to IMA events:

    Hello, I just joined this meetup group. I would like to get into mycology. Do I have to become a member of the IMA first, in order to attend the Forays? Can I attend a foray, and then pay dues and join the IMA if I find it interesting? I will probably join, but I am not currently a member of the IMA. So, I wasn't sure how this meetup group works. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      Membership in the IMA starts at only $20 per year and includes participation in our monthly members-only forays. While our lecture series is open to the public, forays into the woods are limited to members only. This is because the IMA is a scientific and educational nonprofit that holds a scientific collector's permit to pick wild mushrooms for research and education. That's why only club members can come on forays. Club members also receive a great digital monthly newsletter with articles, recipes, research, art and information on additional events. You can become an IMA member at any IMA lecture series event, or by clicking here http://www.illinoismy...­

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
