Bruch Reed has long been a foray leader and mushroom identifier WMS events, from Hiles to Cable Northwoods. Bruch is a member of the Illinois Mycological Association and New York Mycological Society as well, and currently serves as Executive Secretary of North American Mycological Association (NAMA).

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 2 other Wisconsin Clubs, the Madison Mycological Society and the Northwestern Wisconsin MycoEnthusiasts.
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.
