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 award annual scholarships to encourage more folks to study mushrooms, provide specimens for important medical/scientific research, and offer free mushroom educational classes to our members.
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.
