Annual Pot Luck Sat., April 26, 1 PM

Our annual Pot Luck will be Saturday, April 26, 1 PM, at the Helga Township Community Center in Nary, south of Bemidji.

Bring a dish; mushroom based is nice, but not necessary.  Besides eating and visiting we will plan our forays for the year. Any foray suggestions are appreciated.

Sat., Sept. 21, 9 AM Foray at Concordia Language Villages

We will meet at the parking lot at the entrance to the Concordia Language Villages on County Hwy. 20.  From there we will proceed to Waldsee, the German village, for our foray. Directions:  Hwy. 20 (sometimes called the Golf Course Road) can be reached several miles north of Bemidji. Drive about 6 miles east to the entrance to the Villages, where there is a large parking lot.

If you arrive late and we’ve already driven in, drive into the language villages and bear left to get to Waldsee.  You’ll see a parking lot in front of a large building that has a tunnel through it (it’s called Bahnhof).  Park, and then go to the building and through the tunnel.  There will be tables and chairs set up there for us. (They will be moved into the tunnel in case of rain.)

Bring a lunch with you and we’ll have a picnic there after the foray.

Change in plans

Change in plans:  We will not have the Celebration of Mushrooms Weekend Sept. 6-8, because not enough people signed up.

Sat., Sept.7, 9 AM we will have a foray at Deep Portage.   See Calendar of Forays page (click on “Calendar of Forays” in black banner above, just below the opening photograph).


Report on May 25 Foray

We had our first foray of the year Sat., May 25, near Ten Mile Lake, where there had been an aspen cut.. Some morels were found, but it seemed that it was still early for them. Scott Knudson from Lakeland Public TV was there doing a lot of filming for a show planned for probably some time early 2014. We’ll keep you posted on that.
