It was great to be out in the Santa Cruz Mtns, and Maya is a knowledgeable, personable and effective leader. Overall a good experience. The only downside is that there were too many people in the group. It was difficult for all to hear and see what was being shown and explained. A group half the size would have been much better. But you probably don’t make money doing it in smaller groups. But it will make me think twice about doing another Forage outing.

It was great and I enjoyed it a lot. Would have maybe appreciated more of a classroom setting at the beginning to practice identifying mushrooms. It got a little overwhelming at the end looking at the books and trying to identify our finds with little knowledge. We also got a little lost at the end getting back to the starting point. We saw others that were lost while we were trying to navigate back, but everyone seemed to find their way! Even with these small hiccups, it was a lot of fun and I’d love to do it again!

So much fun! We learned a lot and my wife absolutely loved her surprise birthday present.
