President's Message

The year of 2020 was certainly like no other. Due to the pandemic, CMS held "virtual forays," which were a great success. Unfortunately, as we enter the year of 2021, uncertainty still prevails, making foray planning difficult. We will make a decision regarding whether forays will be held in-person or online sometime in the spring and communicate that on this website's "FORAY" tab. If you are a club member, you are welcome to join the club's Facebook page (Cumberland Mycological Society) and to participate in the club's forays or virtual forays. If you are not a club member and would like to become one, click the "Join the Club" tab in the main menu. If you are an existing member, renewals will be applied to the year 2021.

-Steve Roberts
CMS President
