PBMC Calendar for 2020

Forays are for members and the specific location is emailed to members before each foray. A ‘one time’ registration is offered to try it out, use the contact form below to inquire, if necessary, or come with a member. Membership is very reasonable and offers the best value. The April annual meeting, October Picnic, and winter educational meetings are open to all.

Now until the all clear:
See the tip sheet for how to foray with social distancing.

74 degrees and muggy! But it didn’t rain while we were out. 10 club members braved the mosquito laden trails to be rewarded with baskets full of chanterelles Cantharellus flavos, lobster Hypomyces lactifluorum and hedgehogs Hydnum rapandum mushrooms. Many smiles were seen at the social distanced ID table.
Michael’s super star mushroom of the day was a Lactarius indigo. Albeit, he was the only one to see it.
