We’ll spend Friday afternoon in the classroom learning about fungi and examine specimens found on SFI land or close by. Saturday, we’ll foray in the Illinois Valley and into northern California along the Smith River before heading out to the southern Oregon coast. After overnighting in the Brookings area, we’ll continue forays on the coast.
