Mushroom Foray at Liverpool Nova Scotia 2010.

The 2010 foray was held at the White Point resort near Liverpool on Nova Scotia's south shore.The format of the foray being very similar to the previous two years.
This year there were four trails that would each be led by one of the experts.The trails were Kejimkujik seaside park,Pocket wilderness trail,Thomas Raddall park and a group went to the Tidney wilderness area. 
The four experts were Gavin Kernaghan of Mt St Vincent University,Amanda Bremnar from the N.B. museum in St John,Scott Cunningham and David Malloch now retired from the University of Toronto.
After an introduction by Brendan Hemens and the do's and dont's of mushroom hunting by Dr Gavin Kernaghan, the participants formed in to four groups and headed off to their respective trails.After about 5hours of foraging the groups arrived back with their "finds".Then the work began to identify,photograph and catalogue the 100 or so species that were found.These species along with the others found from the previous two years forays will find a permanent home at the Harriet Irving herbarium at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.
