Who We Are

The North American Mycoflora Project is a collaboration between professional mycologists and citizen scientists to document the biodiversity of North American mushrooms and fungi. The project encourages amateurs, working with professionals, to collect, document, preserve dried specimens, and sequence DNA of macrofungi throughout the continent.  The project is overseen by the North American Mycoflora Project, Inc., a charitable 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
