Thanks for visiting our website!
It is with great sadness to inform you that we have lost an outstanding MMHC member. Dr. Chris Wright passed away on January 29, 2020. He has been a club member almost from the time the club was formed in 1981.
Chris contributed greatly to the club and was named an honorary life member. He will be truly missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a future date.
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!
Have you checked out the Michigan Mycoflora Project?
Huafang Su, Education Committee, has arranged an interesting program.
Alden Dirks, a PhD student with Dr. Tim James in the Ecology and Evolution-ary Biology Department at University of Michigan, will present a program on the Michigan Mycoflora Project. The goal is to document all of Michigan’s macroscopic fungal diversity. Michigan Mycoflora Project coordinates collecting, vouchering, and DNA sequencing. Huafang has already been representing MMHC. There will be opportunities for other members to help. Knowledge of what is required as well as what has been done so far will inform and prepare us.
