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.

    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?

    ISDH Wild Mushroom Course Form

    We are hoping to extend the current registrations for 5 years total, but we are still awaiting a final word.
  12. 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

    Forum Monitored

    We will likely be responding in a faster timeframe as the season picks up. Sorry for the slow responses. Please note that this organization has no paid staff, only volunteers.

    Wild Mushroom Courses

We just learned last week that the ISDH has finally approved the form for wild mushroom certifications, but they have not finalized the corresponding policy publicly. The form is available here: http://www.in.gov/isdh/files/56349-fill-in.pdf
