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.
