The Asheville Mushroom Club Yahoo
The Asheville Mushroom Club Yahoo group has been set up to exchange ideas and coordinate impromptu forays and trips among members of the Asheville Mushroom Club. We currently do not restrict membership to this yahoo group in order to allow for interested parties such as mycologists, prospective members and other folks involved with mushrooms, but not part of our club, to be able to join into discussions with club members.
AMC is affiliated with the North American Mycological Association (NAMA) whose purpose is to promote, pursue, and advance the science of mycology. Members of our club receive a discount on NAMA dues. NAMA membership provides you with a newsletter and yearly magazine and entitles you to attend NAMA-sponsored forays around the country. Contact: www.namyco.org www.namyco.org
