37th Annual Samuel Ristich Foray - NEMF 2013
August 7-10, 2013 | University of Québec at Rimouski
Cercle des Mycologues de Montreal will once again host the Northeast Mycological Federation Sam Ristich Foray. This time we will be going to Rimouski, the south side of the Saint Lawrence River, at the University of Quebec. Rimouski is about 680 miles, or twelve hour drive from the north of New York, NY. While a pre-foray day will take place one day ahead (Tuesday), the official foray will be from August 7 – 10 (Wednesday to Saturday) 2013.
Rimouski Foray is packed with special activities, for example, picking mushrooms in the north shore. We will cross the Saint Lawrence by ferry, and hopefully, we will see whales if we are lucky. In addition to our familiar experts from past forays, there will be experts from Quebec and Europe. Similar to the past joint CMM/NEMF forays, we make sure that events will be in both French and English.
Requirements for crossing the national border have been changed since the last Quebec foray. Citizens of the United States MUST show either a passport or a pass card at the border.Regular Foray full registration will be $300.00. Regular plus pre-foray day: $380.00.
