Welcome to the Illinois Mycological Association, 2014!
We are an organization of mushroom enthusiasts and professional mycologists. Our purpose is to both educate and learn about all aspects of the fungal world. Feel free to browse our website and click on the "About the IMA" tab above to learn more about us and join! Membership is only $20 a year and includes a monthly newsletter with information about IMA forays, meetings and special events.
Our meetings are generally held on the first Monday of the month. Our first meeting of 2014 is scheduled for Monday, March 3. The monthly meetings are held either at the North Park Nature Center, or at Lake Katherine. Click on an event in the "Upcoming events" sidebar to learn about what is happening at the next meeting.
Hope your year is off to a good start. Thank you for visiting our website and hope to see you at the next meeting!
In the future, this site will feature:
- the Top Ten questions people ask us about fungi
- a key to the mushrooms of the Chicago area
- our database of historical biographies of mycologists
- a glossary of mycological terms
