We will go out in the morning from 9am to 11 am for sure. Stephen will have the baby, so the afternoon outing will be dependent on how well she is going along. You are welcome to stay all day if you so desire. Information from the organizers: Schedule: We will kick-off the Bioblitz at 9:00 am on Saturday, June 2, at the Earth Discovery Center (AKA Bioblitz Headquarters). At check-in, you will receive a packet of park maps (topographic & habitat type), data collection sheets, lodging info, and a schedule for Saturday and Sunday. Gate admission is free for Bioblitz researchers. Breakfast- we will have coffee, water, fruit, and snacks at check-in Lunch- grab your bag lunch at check-in, or stop in to cool off and eat (we have a library reserved for participants/with wireless!)

    Southern Indiana Hunting.

    Floyd, Clark, and Harrison county hunting.
  7. These morels were formerly classified as Morchella Semilibera. This is the beginning of the peak season for these Morchellas. It takes a lot to make a pound, but they're fun and easy to find under hickory. They lost that beautiful orange hue within minutes of picking them. This is the first time I've ever found this species. Today in Lake County, IN. I'm planning to eat them tomorrow.

    Devil's Urn (Urnula Craterium)

    Hi Bruce🤠👍 Yes, that was a morel. It certainly had me scratching my head a little, because it was flat to the ground, but when i pinched it off the stem and fruiting body was hollow.

    Devil's Urn (Urnula Craterium)

    Welcome back! I need to get out hunting. Pheasantbacks should be available soon, too. Is that really a morel in the third picture? If it wasn't so early in the season I'd think it was a lobster mushroom. Bruce

    Devil's Urn (Urnula Craterium)

    After I posted this, I went to the main page and saw the Urnula... Just an fyi the two morels I found were in Stony Run County park in Lake County, Indiana. They were in a stand of shag bark hickory. Who woulda thunk?
  13. As near as I can tell, here in northern Newton county, the morel season is just starting, but there are many other fungi that spring up. Among them are these really neat looking urnulas. I only found two immature morels, but the forest floor is laden with these black, saprophytic goblets. These can also be parasitic on oak. And the first morel of the season 🤠 (For me)

    Mushroom Walk

    Date: Saturday, 5/5/18 - 1pm to 3 pm Location: Brown County State Park - and across the state of Indiana (iNaturalist) EDIT: There are two morel events going on in Brown County this weekend. We have decided to head that way, but will still hold the walk from 1pm to 3pm at Brown County State Park. With how the year is going so far, I am unsure as to whether we will be finding many morels. It is still too early. Hopefully it will be on next weekend (5-5-18). We are not scouting the area before, just giving it a shot at foray time. If you would like to attend, register for this event here or on Facebook. Even if you cannot make it to the event, you can still contribute to our project from your own location by posting your finds here: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/hms-5-5-18-foray-day. We are still looking for dried specimens from around the state, so we appreciate your help in making collections. Please take time to read more about our online forays, how to make collections, and the FAQ here: http://hoosiermushrooms.org/index.php?/activities/hms-online-forays-2018/

    2017 Schedule of Events

    Hoosier Mushroom Society Globifomes graveolens - Sweet Knot - New Harmonie State Park - Uncommon to find it this fresh with red colorations As per the norm, most scheduled dates should still be considered "soft" and subject to change. It is very tough to schedule mushroom events far in advance. We always have a broad array of events and locations across the state every year, throughout the year. If you would like us to have an event near your town, let us know, and we may be able to schedule one in. The only way we cancel an event is for heavy rain and/or severe weather. Events will continue in light rain. Cancellations will be posted on this page, so please check it the day of the event, to make sure the event is still on. Never been to a foray?

    We are hoping to extend the current registrations for 5 years total, but we are still awaiting a final word.

    ISDH Wild Mushroom Course Form

    Any word regarding those who have certifications that will expire soon, i.e., will they have to re-take a class or just pay a fee to be re-certified?
  25. If you took the Wild Mushroom Course in 2017, the new forms are finally publicly available from ISDH. If you were one of the participants, you should have received an email with additional information. Contact us if you have not received it. Also FYI, as we are getting a lot of questions, 2018 course dates have not been announced. We will be announcing them in a few weeks. The morel courses will be in March and wild mushrooms in June. http://www.in.gov/isdh/files/56349-fill-in.pdf
