Every year, the Peck Foray unites lovers of mushrooms and other fungi for a weekend of collecting and identification.
It's been hosted since 1954 by a different volunteer organizer each year. This year:
Charles Horton Peck NY State Mushroom Foray
|October 2-4, 2015|

Dr. Kathie T. Hodge
The 2015 Peck Foray will be held at the Watson Homestead (near Corning).
Hope you'll join us.
Registration opening soon, hang on!
Friday, October 2nd to Sunday, October 4th, 2015
Arrive Friday evening; stay through Sunday morning.
It's all mushrooms in between!
The Peck Foray is open to all who are interested in fungi. Attendees traditionally include professors and their students, talented nonprofessional mycologists, and curious amateurs. There is no formal education program, only the joint collecting and sharing of interesting mushrooms and other fungi. The Peck developed years ago as a way for graduate and undergraduate students to practice their fungal identification skills. In that light, we try to keep it inexpensive to encourage student participation, and, depending on the facility, we may prioritize student registrations.
This year's volunteer host is Cornell mycologist Kathie T. Hodge.
Contact Dr. Hodge with any questions.
Kathie Hodge maintains this Peck page as a service to you, you mushroom-lover you.
