The first Regional NAMA Foray in Mississippi will be held at The Gray Center in Canton, Mississippi just north of Jackson.
The Foray will be held Thursday June, 28 through Sunday, July 1. We will drive to a couple of wooded sites nearby on Friday morning then put our focus on foraging in the over 750 acres right outside our doors at the Center. They have an extensive network of trails with a varied terrain.
Registration will is limited to 60 NAMA members. The rooms are all air conditioned and are accessible. There are two twin beds in each room with a private bath. You can choose to stay in the main lodge or opt to share a cottage. Each cottage has 8 bedrooms containing 2 twin beds and a private bathroom. The cottages have a shared meetings space, a full kitchen and a patio overlooking the lake.
We will have a presentation each night and a social afterwards. The Head Mycologist will be Dr. Juan Luis Mata of the University of South Alabama.
