Get involved with your Wisconsin Mycological Society!
Volunteers help lead forays, give presentations, hold mushroom cooking classes, help identify mushroom species on forays, provide photos and stories for a Mushroom of the Month, write a WMS Mushroom Dinner reviews, and send in material for our new cookbook.
Fungi Identification & Education
Help identify fungi on the forays. This can be at in-person forays once they resume, or with our virtual forays on iNaturalist, which now have 2 years - 2020 & 2021.
By posting and identifying fungi on iNaturalist & Mushroom Observer, you can learn by trial and error and in conversation with other fungi-identifiers.
On Facebook, you can post on our page or in Wild Food Wisconsin or Mushroom Identification Group.
One book we suggest that covers a wide range of fungi is the National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms.
Check out our other education resources & recommendations... once we have added them! For now, please send in your recommendations and experiences with learning from them.
You can contact Mariah, Peg, or Al if you'd like to help or have questions!
Host a foray in your neck of the woods! It's fun, easy and you don't have to give up your favorite foraging spots. You can pick the place & set the terms with us.
