May 11 COMC meeting with Dr. Steve Trudell in person!

“With the worst of the dark days, snow, and cold weather behind us, it is time to get back to mushrooming. The elusive morels, of course, are the main motivation for most folks to hit the woods, but there are many other fungi that make an appearance in spring. Join us for a look at some of the common spring-fruiting mushrooms that are worth getting to know.” (ST)

Spring is right around the corner!

It has been a long time since we have had any club news to report here, but our steering committee recently met and we have plans. Of course we didn't plan the annual, amazing "Survivor's Banquet" potluck in February but we hope you will join us for fresh, live presentations on Zoom. We have scheduled March 24, Thursday evening for our first Zoom meeting for the club in 2022.  We will have another Zoom meeting in April, but by May 2022, we hope to meet in person, depending on how things progress. Field trips will be planned for members for early May into mid-June, weather depending. Thanks for keeping up your interest in the club and we hope to see you in the sunshine soon
