We will unfortunately have to break our long tradition of holding a SVIMS mushroom show this fall. While a certain virus was looking forward to the opportunity, SVIMS has decided that it would not be a good idea this year. We are hopeful about the fall of 2021.
With a heavy heart and an empty mushroom/specimen basket I must inform you that the Cowichan Foray for 2020 – October 23 – 25 has been cancelled. The COVID protocols and restrictions would have significantly limited the number of participants and the ability to effectively foray, analyze and discuss the many fungi usually collected during this event.
