SVIMS/VMS 2nd Annual
FALL FORAY 1995
20-23 October 1995
B.C. Ministry of Forests Meschie Lake Research Station
Mesachie Lake, Vancouver Island
British Columbia, Canada
The South Vancouver Island Mycological Society and the Vancouver
Mycological Society are pleased to announce their second joint Fall
foray, this time in the mushroom-rich area around Cowichan Lake. We
again invite members of other Pacific Northwest mycological societies,
or other interested mycologists, to join us. The foray will be
based at the Mesachie Lake Research Station, down by the water just
outside the town of Mesachie Lake.
The town of Mesachie Lake is in southern Vancouver Island, on a
south-eastern extension of Cowichan Lake. The area has abundant
fall-fruiting fungi, some of which are being studied by the Ministry
of Forests. Field trips will concentrate on the low-elevation
coastal Douglas-fir forest around the station.
The station includes a bunkhouse, several detached bungalows of
various sizes, showers, a cookhouse with a cook, and a study area.
Beds are all single, in dormitory style (this is a research facility,
after all!). Meals will be prepared by the cook.
*Bring your own bedding or sleeping bag, and towel.*
To reach the station, drive north on Highway 1 from Victoria (or
south from Nanaimo) to Highway 18 just north of Duncan, turn west on
Highway 18, then south on Highway 117 past the town of Lake Cowichan
in the direction of Honeymoon Bay. Watch for the B.C. Ministry of
Forests sign on the right side of the road.
***THE DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS 30 SEPTEMBER 1995***. Late
registration will be frowned upon by the station's cook and may not
be possible. Space is limited to about 61 people, on a first-come,
