Michigan Mushroom Hunters Club (MMHC) provides opportunities for amateur and experienced hunters to commune both with nature and with others who share an interest in and appreciation for nature’s bounty. Whether it is discovering a new culinary delight, getting out in the great outdoors, or simply enjoying the company of others, we think that your membership and participation will prove to be one of great benefit.

If you are new to the world of mushroom hunting or mycology, we encourage you to contact us and attend one of our public hunts and/or other educational events where we will help you to get started in this rewarding activity. MMHC welcomes children accompanied by their parents to participate in our hunts.

Please be sure to visit our Beginners page!


The public hunt that was scheduled for September 19th at Hidden Lake Gardens has been cancelled. Hidden Lake Gardens had to cancel due to Covid-19 restrictions on their events and programs.

Thank you for understanding. Hopefully, we can reschedule for next year!

MMHC Contest – MMHC COVID-19 Stimulus Plan

Why a contest? Why not? With COVID-19 pandemic and social-distancing not going away anytime soon. We all have to adapt and adjust to this reality. We, mushroomers, are lucky ones in this way that we can go out to have some fresh air, exercise, and hunt mushrooms all at the same time. Mushroomers often are going alone which we might have to do lot more this year. However, going alone doesn’t mean hunting alone, I hope this contest will bring us hunting together in a way.

The Goal: To engage and to educate members.

The Period: From May to October (4 or 5 weeks per month). You can participate one month, two months, or the whole period. You make the decision according to your schedule and willingness to participate.

The Participates: MMHC members. No new out-of-state members.
