Past Club President David Fischer is almost single handedly responsible for bringing the enthusiasm and energy needed to continue a vital organization. He started the club newsletter, The Fungal Gazette in about 1990 and hasn't looked back. He recently published his second field guide with co-authors Alan and Arlene Bessette titled Mushrooms of Northeastern North America and their first work, Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America has become the must have field guide for persons who are new to mushroom collecting for the table!
Club get togethers include forays (mushroom walks) meetings, often with guest speakers and slide presentations and identification workshops where members use field guides to attempt to identify the amazing number of mushroom species we find right here in CNY.
CNYMS encourages and facilitates environmental awareness through education and exploration, which highlights the interplay and symbiosis between diverse organisms in a healthy forest. We espouse the safe consumption of wild mushrooms, and encourage people to explore other interesting areas in the science of mycology, the study of fungal kingdom. See our disclaimer for what we don't encourage!
