Rochester Area Mycological Association

A BRIEF HISTORY OF RAMA, PART I



The Rochester Area Mycological Association (RAMA) was organized October, 1984, and held their first meeting at the Helmer Nature Center in Irondequoit, NY. This locale north of Rochester, and a few miles from the shore of Lake Ontario, served the club for a number of years.

Founding members included: Steve Daniels, Laramie Brown, William Hollenbaugh, and brothers Dave and Carl Wolf. This collection of mycophiles (people who love mushrooms) had been Inspired by Dr. Leo Tange, who, for a number of years, taught fungi classes at the Rochester Museum & Science Center.

Eventually, the students decided to move beyond the classroom and venture further into the world of fungi by forming a club to advance their interests. In this way, RAMA was born.
