North American Mycological Association (NAMA)
NAMA is dedicated to promoting and advancing the science of mycology. Unlike many of the other sciences, mycology often involves both amateurs and professionals who rely upon one another for the advancement of the science.
More than 70 clubs, including MMHC, and 2,000 individuals from the United States, Canada, and Mexico belong to NAMA. MMHC encourages budding mycologists to join NAMA to advance their own education in the field and to support other educational and fellowship opportunities available from NAMA.
NAMA supports the protection of natural areas and their biological integrity and it advocates the sustainable use of mushrooms as a resource and endorse responsible mushroom collecting that does not harm the fungi or their habitats.
NAMA has reduced dues for members of the Michigan Mushroom Hunters Club. To learn more about NAMA and join via PayPal visit the following link:
