Genesee Natural Area – May 26, 2024 (and Constable Chelsey Robinson Park)

From Ryan: To my understanding, this marked AMS's inaugural expedition at Genesee NA. The location boasted picturesque landscapes adorned with sprawling trails, mature trees, and diverse ecosystems. Twenty-seven enthusiasts embarked on this quest in anticipation of discovering elusive morels. While fortune favoured a select few with sightings, others stumbled

Edmonton Whitemud Creek – May 25, 2024

46 people showed up for a nice walk in the river valley at Whitemud Creek. Several people came back with a few handfuls of verpae (135 in total), and one morel, but most arrived with only a few curiosities. A mother and son found a garter snake down by

Private Land near Tofield – May 18, 2024

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.

Ministik Bird Sanctuary – May 16, 2024

The mating dance of the grouse could be heard in the near distance and as luck would have it a foray participant flushed it out of the bush. This was an early morel foray and it was extremely successful - with at least 143 Verpa bohemica foraged. One lucky
