Forays into the forest are also a favorit event, with several times scheduled, and limited spots available with an online signup process.

The Cordova Fungus Festival runs later, September 1st-3rd at various locations at the Cordova Center and, likely due to space constraints, requires preregistration with the Cordova Chamber of Commerce at 907-424-7260 or in person at the Festival Info Table in the Center's upper atrium.
