Pop-Up Foray this Saturday 2/29


Please join us for another SDMYCO POP-UP FORAY! 

We’re excited to get out into the wild again. Although the lack of rains this season may not produce an abundance of mushrooms, hopefully some will be up, as the atmosphere has remained moist. Last year’s foray at this site was quite rewarding!

All member attendees must register HERE to participate.
