We enjoyed beautiful warm weather and a fantastic turnout of 39 people, all welcomed by a friendly host, along with adorable dogs and goats. We found 590 Verpa bohemica and 49 Morchella esculenta. Many first-time foragers joined us, and I believe they couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. It was a delightful event. Special thanks to Corey M for graciously allowing us to forage on his land. He was an outstanding host.
