If you can’t go on the foray, or prefer to collect somewhere else and bring specimen for the day. (Anyone welcome, i.e., you don’t need to be a member to bring specimens to the fair). Here are some collecting tips.
Store with some of the substrate with which it was found. Can store in fridge inside paper bag, waxy paper bag, or even to go containers. Bring either Saturday night during set-up or Sunday (hopefully before fair begins) and we can use the specimen for our Identification table.
Collect specimen with ID, where it was found, substrate, smell, and other identification details.
Bag for Duff with each collection.
