Laurence Boomer presented a diarama about morels for our April 22 meeting and it was very well attended with close to 70 folks wanting into the small room we had reserved. Apologies to those who were turned away, but this is the best we could do under the circumstances of losing our other meeting space. We are looking for a better spot to meet regularly, so if you know of a place in Bend that is fairly cheap and can accomodate our growing group (50-75 people), please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Meanwhile, I am hearing every day that people are finding some morels, usually near the Metolius river, but also in nearby burns. The season isn’t in full swing yet, at least from what I have heard, but definitely worth a trip to the woods. Many of us will be going out this weekend hoping to score some tasty morsels, so don’t forget to get your mushroom permit before Friday’s closing time at the USFS (4:25.) It’s still early and I hope a little rain happened in the mountains today. Rain dances are in order here.
Please let us know how you do out there.
