This was a special foray for club officers to enjoy a day with Alan and Arleen Bessette, preceding the club foray and their Lactarius workshop. Eleven participants gathered at Jim Goldsmith's property south of Old Fort. The group started from the house, foraying along the ridge and the hillside below the house. At the barn across the road we split up to explore the various trails. Because there had been very little rain mushrooms were not plentiful.
The Bessettes along with assistance from Mike Hopping and Jim Goldsmith identified 66 species, of which 5 were first time finds for the club.
