Suspected Mushroom Poisioning?

If you suspect poisoning from mushroom consumption, call 1-800-222-1222 Try to get high quality photographs of the suspected mushroom to describe to Poison Control! You may also post those photos to the Emergency Identification Group as a supplement to aid Poison Control. You can help others in the future by filing confirmed mushroom poisonings with NAMA by clicking here.

Monthly Meetings via Zoom

These meetings give us a chance to chat and discuss goals, plan and detail upcoming activities or events, and discuss seasonal fungal fruitings and how to target them. Come with questions, comments, or even ID requests.

Minutes can be found here.

Meetings are held via Zoom on the first Tuesday of every month at 7pm CST
Zoom link is sent out to paid members via email

We are currently encouraging small foray groups to get together, sharing great foraging spots, and helping one another with IDs.
