Welcome to NEMF!
Next NEMF Foray:
The Maine Mycological Association will host the 2014 NEMF foray at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine.
Bowdoin College is a beautiful and historical liberal arts college located in the mid-coast Maine town of Brunswick. It is easily reached by Interstates 95 and 295, and lies about one and a quarter hours from the New Hampshire border. It is within easy range of a number of different habitats including the Maine coast, central Maine woodlands and the foothills of the Appalachians.
Dr. Seanna Annis, mycologist and plant pathologist at the University of Maine at Orono, will be the host mycologist. Presenters will include Renée Lebeuf, Raymond Archambeault, Greg Marley and Michaeline Mulvey.
The foray is named in honor of the late mushroom guru Samuel Ristich.
Those interesting in selling mushroom-related items at the foray should contact Anne Rugh . We anticipate having volunteers available to oversee the exhibition area to add security and assist with sales when vendors aren't present. The charge to vendors will be $10.00 per table.
The Amtrak Downeaster and Concord Coach Lines serve Brunswick and their station is just one block from the College. There will be a free shuttle service from the station to the dormitories. Please contact Delmar Small with questions about the foray or to schedule shuttle service.
