Foray Update - This Weekend (June 25-26)

Just a reminder of the Mid-MO mushroom foray this weekend. The rain hasn't been as plentiful as I would like (though that is probably a good thing for those along the Big Muddy) there are still mushrooms to be found in the woods. Reports of chanterelles, boletes, chicken of the woods, and numerous non-edibles have been coming in all week.

For those who plan to attend, here are few things you may want to consider bringing along.
  1. Water and plenty of it (three is none at the camp but you can get it in other parts of the park)
  2. Food for lunch and snacks
  3. Sunscreen
  4. Bug spray (the ticks and skeeters are both pretty bad this year)
  5. Rain gear or umbrella, unless you don't mind getting wet. (There's a good chance of showers sometime tomorrow and Sunday)
  6. A basket or bags for collecting mushrooms.
  7. A roll of aluminum foil. If you are collecting both edible and non-edibles then you don't want to get what could possibly be a poisonous mushroom (or even a piece of one) mixed in with your chanterelles. You can make little bags with the foil and keep everything separate in your bag/basket.
I will be checking my email tonight if you have any last minute questions or need more information. Hope to see you this weekend.
