Registration will open March 2023.
Dear FUNNZ members
I am writing to advise that the FUNNZ Committee decided last week to postpone the in-person Rotorua Fungal Foray until next year. This was a difficult decision but was arrived at because of the dual issues of managing the foray under the current covid restrictions, in particular the issue of running the foray effectively if people become symptomatic during the foray, as well as wanting to ensure that the institutions supporting the foray organisers are satisfied with the level of iwi and community engagement that has taken place.
The 2022 fungal foray will be held at the Dutch Hall in Rotorua from May 16th – May 20th , with the colloquium day being at Scion.
Registration will open March 2022.
Several members of the 2021 stewart island fungal foray to stewart island were interviewd for the TV show 'Seven Sharp'. You can watch this here: https://www.tvnz.co.nz/shows/seven-sharp/clips/out-and-about-with-the-fu...
Limited places are still available for the foray on Stewart Island, taking place between April 11th – 17th 2021. Key details are:
The 2021 Fungal foray will be held at Oban, Stewart Island Rakiura, 11 to 17 April 2021. This is a replacement for the 2020 foray that was not held due to COVID-19. Those who registered for the 2020 foray will have first priority for places in 2021.
UPDATE: Due to COVID-19 the 2020 Foray is cancelled. More detail below.
We will be based at Stewart Island Community Centre, Ayr Street, Oban. There will be four days for foraying and specimen study, with the 19th Mycology Colloquium talking place on Wednesday April 29th. Please note, this year we are restricting numbers to around 45 participants, due to the logistical challenges presented by running the foray on Stewart Island. We will also initially accept registrations for the full foray only. Final details for the timing of daily activities will be provided on the first morning, but expect to be arranging your own breakfast, then meeting at the centre from 8:00am for the foray days. Dinners will be served at a variety of locations. This year, we will be setting up the hall from Monday morning so anticipate that excursions leaving that morning may start a little later than normal. However, lunches will be provided for us pre-bagged, and there are lots of spots to foray that are a close walk, so there will still be plenty of time for collecting.
33rd Foray and 18th Colloquium, 2019 Awakeri, eastern BOP May, Sunday 12 to Saturday 18 2019
Registration period: March 1 – 31, 2019
