Ruch, Donald .
2009 Mycological Society of America Annual Foray.
The foray route planned for 2009 will take us into the Uintah mountain range of northern Utah. The Uintah mountains run east to west along the northern border of Utah and have the highest elevations within the state. Because of their high elevation, the Uintahs typically receive afternoon thundershowers in late summer that make them the most reliable spot for collecting fungi in an otherwise arid state. The planned route runs through a variety of plant communities at elevations ranging from about 4,500 ft to 10,000 ft including semiarid scrub oak, ponderosa pine, aspen, lodgepole pine, and spruce-fir forests. Duration: 7- 8 hours with 2 hours traveling time each way and a couple of collecting stops once we reach the higher elevations.
Each participant should bring any collecting supplies required for his/her collecting and storage of fungi. Due to the topography at the sites where we will be collecting, participants should be prepared for a stenuous walk.
Includes transportation, continental breakfast, lunch and water
