This year The Foray will be held in New York’s Adirondack Mountains. Participants with all levels of skill and interest are welcome and sure to benefit from the experience.  If you are interested in mosses or lichens, but lack advanced knowledge, all the more reason to attend. We will be based in SUNY’s Newcomb Campus but will have field trips all day on Saturday in the Shingle Shanty preserve led by the preserve manager Steve Langdon. The preserve has an interesting mix of upland and wetlands habitats. Steve and Dan Spada are also planning additional field sites for Sunday around the Newcomb area.

The basic cost for meals and lodging this year is $160 per person, based on shared room occupancy. There will be no dinner provided Friday night. For those who wish to find their own accommodations, meals and registration will be $95 per person. The student rate is $85 which includes meals and shared lodging.  A larger meeting room will be available for microscope use.

A registration form is copied below. The deadline for registration is August 25, 2017.  Any questions should be directed to Tom Phillips at mossvet   @
