I know- it's early but it's on my mind because I was asked if I wanted to draw the 40th Anniversary MST Poster! - by the 'Foray Director' himself - how could I refuse? It's not until September - September 22nd (Storms birthday - another reason I couldn't refuse - hee hee) but it's going to be quite the event and they want to advertise early!
In Muskoka - the perfect Fungi Setting - I already know it's going to be a beautiful weekend.
Storm has attended past weekend Cain Forays & shared they are incredibly enjoyable & informative, nice to be amongst fellow Fungi aficionados! This year celebrating the 40th Cain Foray - I've no doubts it will be an event to top all others. The MST is educating the masses on Mushrooms - they had a special event at the ROM, educational material printed and promoted, many members have young children and understand the serious RISKS posed when Children are NOT taught about finding wild edible/poisonous mushrooms - many which LOOK similar to what they recognize in the grocery stores. *Too MANY Adults are equally as uninformed. If you are not positive- don't pop it in your mouth.
The Mycological Society of Toronto holds weekly Forays in the spring & fall, this weekend was the official first! They have special themed meals, monthly meetings with informative guests, mycologists, authors, illustrators & artists, photographers, chefs, fungi farmers and MORE! Want to experience a NEW Hobby? One that feeds your tummy & soul? Grab our basket, Mushroom knife - sketch book and get ready- Foray Season is here!!
Spring Foray Season that it! Can you smell the morel?
