to the wild world of mushrooms and one of the
fungest groups out there! Come and immerse yourself in the mysterious and little known world of fungi.
If finding, eating or learning about mushrooms sounds interesting, then the Missouri Mycological Society (MOMS) is the group for you! We are a friendly group of nature enthusiasts that enjoy getting together to talk about mushrooms and anything else we discover along the way. Some of us MOMS members like to see our mushrooms on a dinner plate and some of us like to see our mushrooms on a glass slide under a microscope. Whatever your interest, MOMS has something for you.
Throughout the year, MOMS members regularly get together for weekend camping trips, mushroom hunting called forays, mushroom classes, and other events. No matter what your preference, you can expect warm people, a friendly atmosphere and fun memories.
MOMS also believes in giving back. We award annual scholarships, provide specimens for important medical/scientific research, and offer free mushroom educational classes to our members.
If you are interested, check out our website, calendar of events, our Earthstar Examiner newsletter, or friend us on Facebook.
Hope to see you in the woods soon!
