2022 Annual Foray
State Park Lodge
What it is:
A collection of guest speakers with great lectures, hands-on workshops, woods walks, tastings, fun mushroom swag, local artisan vendors, and fellow mycophiles.
How it works:
The foray runs for three days in July and is based at the lodge at Blackwater Falls. You must pay and register to attend. Buy your ticket online here, as there are unlikely to be any left on the day of the actual event. Be sure to check-in at the registration table at the lodge when you arrive. You will be able to sign up for the various walks at check-in. You are welcome to book a room there on your own (mention the Mushroom Club), camp nearby, or just come for the day.
Weekend passes include a full schedule of walks and talks Friday through Sunday, tastings, and a gourmet pizza party Friday night. You can choose to purchase limited spots in the Sunday workshops for additional fees. Read the ticket options carefully, there are a lot!
Children under the age of 16 are free, but will need to PURCHASE a Friday Pizza Party Child ticket if they plan to attend. Foray tickets are limited this year, don't delay--it is anticipated to sell out.
The WV Mushroom Club is a non-profit run by hard-working volunteers. If you are interested, we offer a discount for willing volunteers. You will be asked to work a (up to) 4 hour shift in return for $30 off your weekend pass. Be sure to purchase the Foray Volunteer Weekend Pass and we will contact you closer to the date with more information.
