October 26, 2023

We have several important announcements. First, our "Edible Mushrooms of Missouri" class had to be postponed to November 1 at 6:30 PM. Second, due to bad weather in the forecast, we will not be having our normal campout for "The Hawnting" which was scheduled for October 27-29. Instead we will have a day foray on Saturday, October 28. Read all about it.

And there's still more on our calendar for this year. We will have forays at Montauk State Park, Hidden Valley Park, Rock Bridge Memorial State Park. and "Wild Times Foray and Foodfest" (our final foray of the year) at Babler State Park. There will also be a special presentation in December by Britt Bunyard titled "The Amazing Lives of Fungi" which you can attend either live or via Zoom.

Finally, get ready for next year by becoming a member now. Our Family memberships allow you to bring anyone in your household to any of our events and even guests who are not members.


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.
