We request that no one hunts a walk or foray location for at least two weeks
prior to a walk or foray. It is only through your cooperation that we can have
successful walks and forays. All walks & forays will be held rain or shine.
Come 15-30 min early and socialize. All walks start on time, so be early, if
you are late we will already be in the woods.
For all walks and forays, bring water and lunch. Dress for the weather. Bring
basket, wax or paper bags (no plastic) to keep mushrooms separated, whistle,
compass, chair, hand lens, insect repellent, cell phone, and books for
identification. Also bring a knife to dig up mushrooms for identification or to
cut edibles off to keep them clean. Try to dig up 3 of the same species at
different stages of development. Don't pick old mushrooms; leave them to drop
their spores. Bring your membership card and a friend or two. You are
responsible for not getting lost, if you have that tendency stick like glue to
others. We won't wait for you, and we won't come look for you. Don't take the
identification of the person standing next to you, they might not know as much
as you do. Only club mycologists and identifiers should be used for advice.
The Walk Leader will tell you when to be back at the walk starting place where
the mushrooms will be put on paper plates and the Walk Identifier or Club
Mycologist will put names on only the mushrooms that they know well. Take notes
and pictures to help you remember the mushrooms. You should go home and check
books yourself. Whether you decide to eat a mushroom, is ultimately only your
