The Arizona Mushroom Club is a social organization. The members include professional mycologists as well as novices. Members partake in outings to find fungi, identify the fungi and enjoy the edible fruits of Arizona’s fungi. We have forays in the Spring for morels. That is followed in the summer and early fall forays in the mountains for the many edible mushroom species that grow there. Training meetings are held when there is a demand. The year is capped with an annual pot-luck in December where Club business is conducted. Membership in our Club is open to all except those who have a commercial interest in edible mushrooms.
The ANNUAL MUSHROOM FORAY to the White Mountains has been scheduled for AUGUST 23-24, 2014
We will meet Saturday and Sunday at 8:00 am at the Safeway Store parking lot in Springerville. Please be prompt as stragglers often miss out on the day's foray. We will disband after the Sunday lunch for a return to the valley.
Bring lunch, beverages and water for both days. Suggested additional items are; picnic chairs, hat, rain gear, mosquito repellant, small paper lunch bags to keep specimens separate, collecting bags or baskets, mushroom books, soft bristle brush, soft rags, collecting knife, walking stick, compass or GPS, whistle, camera and other provisions for use as needed.
If you plan to attend this foray, please print out and bring a completed Release and Indemnification form, for each member of your party.
