One of the great perks of being a member is being able to come on the forays. Mushroom hunts are regularly led by our knowledgeable volunteers into the fungal jungles of San Diego county and environs. Bring your basket! Participation in SDMS Forays requires a signed liability waiver. To save time at the start of forays, you can download a form here Release and Indemnification Liability Waiver, sign it, and turn it in with your membership renewal.

This year (2023) we’ve already had more forays than most years due to the rainstorms, so, conditions have been ripe for headed out to explore the fruits of mother nature. We have forays up coming constantly and we invite you to come see what it’s all about!

We also have our Foray Species List Archive, where you can see which kinds of mushrooms we’ve found on our path over the years.

You can see that here at the Archive page.
