2008 Georgia Chanterelle and Black Trumpet Foray Info And Registration

     Come and join Chris Matherly  in Georgia for the 2008 Morel Mushroom Hunting Club's Chanterelle and Black Trumpet Foray. If you have followed this site, then you have seen photos posted for the past 3 years of these beautiful mushrooms that we found here in the very deep South! We may find up to 9 different species of Chanterelles on this Foray! Some of the locations we hunt are filled so full of mushrooms that the forest floor looks like a carpet of Orange!  This is my first non-Morel Foray, so be sure and participate in the ground breaking event! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity so make sure you register immediately, as it will be on a first come first served basis, and limited to the first 15 registrants.
