We're excited to announce registration for our "Brad's Fall Foray" event is now open. Make sure to register early to get your choice of lodging and workshops. You must be a member to register but you can bring guests who are nonmembers.

The slides from our latest class, "Common Mushrooms of Missouri - Part 2", are now available to MOMS members. Login and go to Identification Classes (under Education).

New events just keep on coming. Our latest are "Advances in science and community engagement are positively impacting fungal conservation" presented by Greg Mueller from the Chicago Botanical Garden AND a presentation by Britt Bunyard later on in December. These in-person events are for members-only so join MOMS today. But even if you're not a member, you can still attend these events online via Zoom.

We're still adding items to our busy calendar so check it often for that perfect foray you're looking for. Most of our forays and other events are open to the public but there are some for members only. So if you're not yet a member, we invite you to explore our site and join MOMS so you can learn all about the world of fungi.


Welcome to the magical world of mushrooms and one of the most active mushroom clubs out there! Come and immerse yourself in the beautiful and mysterious world of fungi.

If finding, eating, photographing, researching, or just learning about mushrooms sounds interesting, then the Missouri Mycological Society (MOMS) is the group for you! We are a friendly group of nature enthusiasts across Missouri 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. Our events always contain fun, food and fungus. With chapters across the state MOMS always has something interesting for you and your family to do.

Throughout the year, MOMS members regularly get together for weekend camping trips, mushroom hunting trips called forays, mushroom classes, and special culinary gatherings. No matter what your preference, you can expect warm people, a friendly atmosphere, and fun memories.

As part of our mission MOMS also strongly believes in giving back. We offer free mushroom educational classes to our members in addition to many free events to the general public to foster an interest in learning all about the fungi of Missouri.

If you are interested in learning more, please check out our website, calendar of events, past and current copies of the Earthstar Examiner newsletter, and friend us on Facebook.

Happy hunting! Hope to see you at an event soon.
