MUSHROOM CLASSES

Click here for the contents of our most recent Mushroom Identification class

(This will be available until Apri 21)


Do you go out in the woods, see mushrooms and have no idea what they are? Have you wanted to pick and eat the mushrooms you see but you don't know if they are edible or poisonous? Do you gather with other mushroom enthusiasts and feel that everyone is smarter than you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have the perfect solution.

We offer four classes every year.
  • 10 Common Poisonous Mushrooms of Missouri
  • 10 Common Mushrooms of Missouri - Part I
  • 10 Common Mushrooms of Missouri - Part II
  • 10 Common Edible Mushrooms of Missouri

Since the outbreak of COVID, all classes are now being held online. Although there are some advantages to the in-person classes we used to have, the online classes have proven to be very effective and all members, wherever they are located, can easily attend.

Here is a complete list of all mushrooms covered in each class. And don't hesitate to repeat and repeat and repeat a class. You'll learn more each time and it's always lots of fun. Please register for each class with Maxine Stone. Classes are free to all MOMS members.

Each class covers 10 mushrooms in its category. If you attend all 4 classes you'll know 40 mushrooms. We offer optional homework and a test for each class. If you successfully complete these, you will be awarded a beautiful pin for that particular class. Once you earn all 4 pins you will receive the Harry Thiers Certificate for Mushroom Proficiency. Many of our members have already been awarded pins and certificates whose names are listed below.
