IMA Mushroom Foray: Saturday 28 September 2013

  • Sep 28, 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:

    It still said "Leader: NEEDED". Is this meetup happening? What's the exact meeting place?

      Sorry, I didn't see your note. To be a safety leader, you must be an expert in using a clip board to get people to sign in. Duties also include making sure nobody gets left in the woods. You do NOT need to know anything about mushrooms, just sign-in sheets. We would love your help with this at our November 2nd foray, Vadim. I can't attend that one. Are you available? It's in Morton Grove. Thanks.

      Rebecca - I'd like to participate in a meetup (foray) with a more/less knowledgeable foray leader whom I could learn something from. So far it seems that none is coming for the meetups. I am not 100% sure if I can come for Nov 2 but if you know it will have a leader please let me know the location. Thank you.
