Columbus Day Foray
MONDAY 14 October 2013, 9:00 a.m.
Leader:  Rebecca Fyffe[masked] iphone [masked]
Collecting Purpose:  Scientific and Educational ONLY
Chicago, IL 60646
Nearest Transit:  MD-N Metra to Edgebrook or buses 86 or 270
Driving Directions:  We will meet in the parking lot for the Aquatic Center.

Membership in the IMA is 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.illinoismyco.org/home
