MT Lemmon Regional Mushroom Foray

Mount Lemmon

$30.00

This is a Mushroom identification workshop for those those individuals that are serious about studying mushrooms. The foray will he held at Mt. Lemmon, Madera,Mt. Graham, Mt Carr,and Chiricahuas. Forays can vary on dates and season. We will be up there for a few hours or until sunset. I will make this a fun and exciting learning experience. You will learn to identify medicinal and edible mushrooms, and poisonous mushrooms. Since I am working alone I can only do 20 people per trip maximum but I will provide a wealth of knowledge and attention to all parties. The event will cost about 30$ per person this is to pay for insurance, gas and a permit from forest services, so that i can continue doing this for everyone. We will meet in town at the Udall park north facing parking lot under the solar panels across from fleet feet and drive up the mountain. please check in with me to sign in on clipboard pleasepay ahead of time on my paypal [masked] you can venmo or zelle as well my phone number is[masked]. I understand some of you may not be from Tucson so I would like to explain that Madera Canyon and Mt Lemmon are about an 50 min to an hour drive from Tucson so make sure that if you are not car pooling that you have enough gas for this trip. We will study every mushrooms we find and our other priority as well is of to clean up our forests educate people on respecting nature and not harvesting laws and protocol(bring atrash bag). Another thing to keep in mind and is very important if you RSVP and then cancel last minute please let me know through a text I want everybody to take my phone number down and communicate with me on the day of the trip because we are always delayed due to lack of communication. Another thing I would like to add is that we will be covering a lot of rugged terrain in high altitude, this may make walking and breathing difficult consult your doctor if you have any conditions that may be affected by these factors. We may find ourselves walking through steep areas and may encounter poison oak/wild life. My partners and I will do our best to keep everyone in a relatively close proximity and answer questions, however everyone must be careful and responsible for their own safety when wondering off. With this said no one has ever been hurt in any of my forays so lets keep that way and lets have some fun! don't forget to wear pants and long sleeves to protect yourself from being scratched or bitten by bugs. Most importantly please respect mother nature if you are going to harvest Mushrooms only take as much as you need for personal use and take 1/3 from a batch leave 2/3 you do not over harvest! be considerate of the forest and all of the inhabitants that also live off Mushrooms. If you’re going to harvest more than what you need for personal you please go down to Forest Service‘s and get a permit. Violators will be reported and kicked from the group. Due to a collaboration and encouragement from my behalf Forest Service is has now published a set of guidelines for foraging Mushrooms please adhere to the guidelines. PLEASE BE SURE TO RSVP AHEAD OF TIME OTHERWISE EVENTS WILL BE CANCELLED IF THERE AREN'T ENOUGH PEOPLE (at least 5 )REGISTERED ONE AT LEAST 2 DAYS PRIOR.
