Foray in summer 2003 looking for chanterelles

We explore the region on many forays during the mushroom seasons. Learn how to hunt for morels in spring (and become an official morel mushroom hunter), or identify chanterelles in the middle of summer, or search for boletes in the fall.

Spend a morning outdoors!

Attending our forays is the best way to begin your education in mushroom identification. Here you will learn the numerous features that help identify mushroom species, discover their important ecological roles, and make new friends and acquaintances.

The foray schedule is a benefit of IMA membership. If you are interested in starting your education right away, contact us and we’ll be happy to introduce you to the world of fungi through one of our forays.
