You can download Zoom for free for desktop or mobile here.
You can always choose how you participate -- listening, unmuting yourself & speaking, or by typing in the chat. See below for a Zoom tutorial.
All Zoom meetings start at 6:30 PM CST.
We get going with 30 minutes of collaborative identification of WMS observations on iNaturalist as everyone joins the meeting. These will be from our 2020 & 2021 forays.
The main event runs from 7:00 - 7:45 PM concluding with Q&A from 7:45 - 8:00 PM
The Zoom address you need will be sent to WMS members by email.
Be sure to watch for it & be sure your contact info with us is up-to-date!
Please don't hesitate to contact us with your questions or concerns.
Whether it is making sure you can attend and enjoy our virtual meetings, or making sure you can find a ride to get to one of our in-person forays, we want to be sure all members have access.
Wisconsin Mycological Society (WMS) is dedicated to the study and enjoyment of mushrooms and other fungi throughout the state of Wisconsin. Education, safety, sustainability, community, and connecting with nature are our goals. We are affiliated with NAMA, along with our sister club, the Madison Mycological Society.
We do not ID mushrooms through this website.
If you are in need of an ID consider uploading quality photos and descriptions of your find to Mushroom Observer or iNaturalist including our projects or post in Wild Food Wisconsin or Mushroom Identification Group.
If You Suspect a Poisoning
If you suspect you have consumed a poisonous mushroom, contact a physician, the closest hospital ER, poison control center, or dial 911, depending on the severity of the reaction.
US Poison Control: 1-800-222-1222
