Multi-Day Forays

Attending a multi-day foray is a fun, exciting and rewarding experience. These forays provide opportunities for amateurs to rub elbows with professionals and well known advanced amateurs, go on fungus hunting walks in areas that are unfamiliar to you, hear talks from some of the foremost mycological experts, and make new mycophile friends. Some forays that our members have attended are listed below. There are many others around the country; check "Events" on the NAMA web site if you are interested.
