Guided Forays

Forays are organized, ticketed outings for CMS members.

Tickets may be obtained via the CMS web site. There is no cost for members to purchase a ticket, but you must be a CMS member in order to checkout.

Participants normally meet at a designated location and carpool to the foray destination.

Typical Activities

A Foray leader and assistants will provide instruction on appropriate methods of collecting, after which the participants fan out in small groups to search for specimens. At an appointed time, they reconvene and the leaders provide further instruction in correct procedures for identification.

Duration & Expectations

Forays usually last about 4-5 hours including travel time.
Forays involve light physical exertion sometimes at high altitudes.

Remember to bring water & sunscreen
Remember to come prepared & double check your belongings
