Missouri Mycological Society
If finding, eating or learning about mushrooms sounds interesting, then the Missouri Mycological Society (MOMS) is the group for you! They are a friendly group of nature enthusiasts that enjoy getting together to talk about mushrooms and anything else they discover along the way. Some MOMS members like to see mushrooms on a dinner plate and some like to see mushrooms on a glass slide under a microscope. Throughout the year, MOMS members regularly get together for weekend camping trips, mushroom hunting called forays, mushroom classes, and other events.
MOMS awards annual scholarships, provides specimens for important medical/scientific research, and offers free mushroom educational classes to members. They also serve as a key resource on poisonous mushrooms for numerous hospitals in the region.
