Annual Wisconsin Mycological Society Foray
July 17, 2020 - July 19, 2020
Welcome to the Annual Northwoods Foray! This event is fun for the whole family! Recreation—besides mushrooming—includes swimming, canoeing (either on the area lakes or headwaters of the Wolf River), fishing, or wandering the many excellent paths for hiking and biking right outside your door. And then there’s the mushrooms. In most years, while the rest of North America is experiencing drought, the Northwoods is nicely moist and the mushrooms plentiful. (More species of mushrooms are found at the Northwoods foray than at any other WMS forays throughout the year!) The region features a diverse mix of trees, including beech, hemlock, spruce, tamarack, paperbark and gray birch, sugar maple, hop hornbeam and red oak, primarily, leading to a diverse mix of mycoflora.
Wisconsin Mycological Society (WMS), was established many years ago, dedicated to the study and enjoyment of wild mushrooms and other fungi. Education, photography, safety and nature are our goals.
