When collecting, please obey COMA’s guidelines – which include no uprooting of noninvasive plants and no commercial collecting – as well as the policy of the property we are visiting. Note that sometimes the ‘do not disturb wildlife’ policy of parks we visit will have exceptions granted to us for identification purposes. Please remember to ask our walk guides about collection guidelines for these properties.
Our walks are followed by a communal lunch and a mushroom identification session. Bring your lunch (and something to share) and a mushroom manual to help with the identification of our finds. (COMA cannot be responsible for mushroom identification).
