Additional Comments: This foray was requested by some Bragg Creek area residents. It was opened up to a few more AMS members as well. The numbers were kept low due to COVID19 and it was meant to be more of an educational foray rather than an “full basket” edible mushroom collection. The area was dry side and mushrooms were not abundant, however, a few were found to make for a reasonable teaching experience. No photos available.
