Who We Are

The North American Mycoflora Project is a collaboration between citizen scientists and professional mycologists to document the biodiversity and distribution of North American macrofungi (visible to the naked eye). The project helps 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.
