Welcome to MMHC....
Your primary resource for mushroom hunting in Michigan.
Mushroom hunting and the science of mycology provide a fun outdoor activity for individuals and families alike. Michigan is resplendent in the varieties of fungi that can be found in our abundant forests and fields but one needs to know what to look for; not only that, just when and where to look is important too.
Upcoming Educational Seminar
Wednesday, October 15th from 1 to 3 p.m.
The class is at the Mount Pleasant Commission on Aging Building, Mount Pleasant, Michigan. “The Good, The Bad, and The Deadly” DVD by Taylor Lockwood will be presented and discussed. The focus will be on Central MI Mushrooms and some ways to avoid wild ones which are undesirable. This will relate to people and their pets and cover some ‘look-alikes’, and what to do in case of poisonings after ingestion of suspect toxic fungi.
For directions go to the Commission on Aging’s website at http://www.isabellacounty.org/dept/coa and then click on the address 2200 S. Lincoln Rd.Mt. Pleasant, MI 48858, in the lower left hand corner for a map.
