Leaders: Lynn Ovenden, Joan Heyding, Ian Gough

Meet: The Calabogie Tourist Centre at 9:30:


Sandy Garland has invited us for a Fungi Foray at her property near Calabogie. “I’ve found coral fungi, jellies, pig’s ears, slime moulds, chicken of the woods, lots of gilled mushroom, boletes, and of course polypores. The land is 75 acres of once-cut pine forest, now mixed forest. The oldest pines must be close to 100 years old. Lots of balsam fir, some cedar, maples, beech, aspen, birch (paper and grey), ironwood. A snowmobile trail runs through it and a hydro line cuts across the corner; lots of wet areas and a beaver pond.”

Sandy’s property is about a 1 1/4 hours drive from Ottawa. We will collect fungi for two hours in the morning, have lunch, and then will sort, ID, and display the fungi that has been collected on two tables in the screened porch. Please note that this is not a foray for collecting edible fungi.

Registration is limited to 10 participants. If you are interested please write to Joan Heyding: ljheyding [at] gmail.com. Information about how the Foray location, how to prepare for a foray, foray etiquette and collecting practices will be sent to you then. If you have space for carpooling, please let Joan know.
