Members Walks

Member walks have resumed. Please be fully vaccinated, for your own safety and that of your fellow club members.

We meet when public transportation arrives. Walks last 5-6 hours and are of moderate difficulty except where noted. Bring lunch, water, a knife, a whistle and a basket for mushrooms. Leaders have discretion to cancel walks in case of rain or dry conditions. Call or email if in doubt. Phone numbers and emails are distributed to the membership.

We ask that members refrain from visiting walk sites 2 weeks prior to the walk.

WARNING: Many mushrooms are toxic. Neither the Society nor individual members are responsible for the identification or edibility of any fungus.
