Come join us to look and learn about wild mushrooms around the Flagstaff area!
The Arizona Mushroom Society has held an annual Flagstaff Arboretum Foray over the previous years, which had always included a lecture on the wonderful world of fungi, followed by a foray the next day. Due to the Covid pandemic, we are changing the event to focus only on outdoor, small group forays. Other information on local AZ mushrooms will be available for registered participants in video format.
On August 22, we are offering small group forays (10 people or fewer) to learn about our local northern Arizona mycoflora. Due to the small group sizes, there are very limited spaces open this year. You can register yourself and one guest through the registration process. Registration is $25 per person. Fees go to support the Flagstaff Arboretum. There are no refunds for cancellations within 48 hours prior to the event. If the foray needs to be cancelled due to severe storm activity, all registration costs will be refunded.
This is an opportunity to learn about local mushroom that grow after the summer monsoons have set in. Come take a walk with us in prime mushroom habitat during the best time of year with a knowledgeable guide that can help you positively identify edible mushrooms.
Each registration option is for a different location in the Flagstaff area. Once you register you will be sent additional emails verifying your registration and providing additional information about the meet-up location for the foray. If you do not receive an email after registering, please be sure to check your spam folder.
You are allowed to register up to one guest for the foray. Please only bring those registered for the event so that the 10-person limit is not violated.
Due to the need to limit group size, there is a very limited number of opportunities to join a foray. Please only register if you plan to attend.
Please come prepared to hike up to 2 miles on uneven terrain and steep slopes. Make sure to come prepared with adequate food, water, and other supplies. Supplies to bring include food, water, sunscreen, raincoat, a non-plastic bag or basket, and a small knife that can be hiked with safely.
COVID SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
All foray participants are required to wear a mask during foray activities. Those not wearing a mask may be asked to leave. Should there be any conflict or compliance issues, the foray may be cancelled immediately.
