PSMC 2018 Foray Schedule

Check the 'Forays' page for details of upcoming forays.

- Sept. 22, 10:00 am - noon, Big Grove Preserve, Johnson Co.
- Oct. 6th, 10:00 am - noon, Eden Valley Park, Clinton Co.

Note that our annual meeting will be held after the foray at Eden Valley Park in Clinton County on October 6th. See the Forays page for more details as they become available.

We will be scheduling more forays as the season progresses. Check often for updates.

We have exciting news that we have been working on during the off-season. We are planning to sequence the DNA of up to 100 mushrooms this season with the help of Sarah, a student at U of I. We will be targeting mushrooms found in this area that have never been sequenced before. You can be part of this effort by joining us on forays. Whoo-Hoo!
