CNYMS Forays are free and open to the public. A foray is a walk in the woods with people who are interested in nature and in particular wild mushrooms. At the conclusion of our forays we usually gather to review and identify the mushrooms that we have collected. We are often joined by professional mycologists, teachers and amatuer experts making our forays a great time to learn about wild fungi.
FALL FUNGI FRENZI!
The August Foray at Vanderkamp was the best foray Ive ever been on! The twenty people who attended were split into two groups, half led by the knowledgeable Roy Reehil into the swamp, and the others led by his beautiful wife, Pat, along the lake. The resulting collection was a plethora of fungi, some of which Ive never seen except in books. Our list included: Crown-tipped Coral (Clavicorona pyxidata), as well as some other corals, Platterful Mushrooms (Tricholomopsis decora), Fawn Mushrooms ( Pluteus cervinus), Poison Pigskin puffballs, as well as Boletes that were growing on it, Boletus paraciticus! Our other Boletes were the Bitter (Tylopilus felleus), Chestnut (Gyropous castaneus), Two-color bolete(Boletus bicolor), and Suillus tomentosus).
We found Aminita citrina, rubescens, virosa, and the Tawny grisette(A. vaginata). We also found Golden spindles(Clavulinopsis fusiforms) and both yellow and black Spathularia, Jelly babies(Leotia viscosa), Waxy caps, eyelash cups, Black Trumpets, Chanterelles, Yellow-footed Chanterelles, Sulfer shelf, Ganodermas, Black-staining polypore, Velvet pax, and Montagnes polypore. Vanderkamp is a wondrous place! Thank you Roy and Pat for hosting us!
