60th Annual mushroom foray comes to Granby — The Know

Granby’s Snow Mountain Ranch YMCA of the Rockies will be the site for the 60th annual North American Mycological Association foray for mushrooms.

Starting Aug. 12 through Aug. 15, North American Mycological Society members, including professional mycologists, mushroom lovers and nature enthusiasts, will gather to hunt for mushrooms, identify them and learn about them. On half-day and full-day forays over the course of the weekend, amateur mycologists will gather mushrooms for identification.

In addition to the forays, activities for the weekend include a beginner’s class for first-time hunters, workshops on fiber dyeing with mushrooms and miniature mushroom terrariums, a mushroom cooking demonstration and more.

Amy Honan, the curator of fungi for Western Colorado University, will serve as Chief Mycologist with Dr. Andrew Wilson of the Denver Botanic Gardens leading the identification team.
