A LITTLE BIT ABOUT RAMA



RAMA got started years ago when a group of people, with similar interests in wild mushrooms, got together and decided to form a club. Pretty basic, huh? That was 25 years ago!

Since then, RAMA has grown into a diverse group of people who share a common passion: Mushrooms.

Club Members

RAMA is dedicated to the enjoyment (scientific and gastronomic) of wild mushrooms. Our members include those interested in mushrooms as wild edibles, photographic subjects, and/or objects of curiosity and study. Whatever the reason, as a group, we love mushrooms and we love being outdoors.

Club Members

Everyone who is interested in wild mushrooms is welcome to join us and become a member of RAMA.

"RAMA's purpose is to provide a forum for cooperative study of the higher fungi. People who are actively interested in any aspect of mycology, are committed to conserving natural mycological environments by restrained and moderate collection practices, and are committed to safety in mycological pursuits, may find RAMA membership attractive."
During the year we have a series of monthly meetings, and members-only forays. A schedule of RAMA events is published in our quarterly newsletter, MycoPages.

Some mushrooms can be used as natural dyes, and some can even be used to help clean up the environment. Can you believe that? Mushrooms are amazing!
