General admission to participate will be $50/person & children under the age of 12 are a donation of your choice.

*Please dress for the woods, there are things like sharp branches, poison ivy, and wood ticks in the woods so make sure you dress accordingly


The Morels & Memories Mushroom Hunt & Alzheimer’s Fundraiser was started in honor of our mother Heidi Vanderlinde who was diagnosed with Younger Onset Alzheimer’s Disease in 2011, at the age of 49.  She sadly lost her battle to the disease August 2019.  As a lover of the outdoors, plants, and sunshine, we remember her with the event.  The fundraiser is now on it’s 8th year, raising almost $61,000 and counting towards finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.


100% of donations will be going to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, who in turn uses 100% of donations towards research!


Today, there is no cure for Alzheimer's disease.  Until then, we will hunt morel mushrooms for a cure!
