The Cornell Mushroom Club and Mushrooms-L
Thanks to some dedicated undergraduate students, Cornell now has a mushroom club. Meetings are irregular and we don't have our own website (yet?). To join, email the club's group acct: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Club activities include field trips, mushroom cultivation, and mushroom forays. The club's been especially involved with Cornell's Forest Mushroom Growers Network. ...and anything you're interested in, really, if you're willing to lend a hand.
Want more mushrooms? Other nearby mushroom clubs include the Rochester Area Mycological Association, the Susquehanna Valley Mycological Society (Binghamton/Endicott), the Central New York Mycological Society (Syracuse), and the Western Pennsylvania Mushroom Club (Pittsburgh). Also, watch for NY's Peck Foray and the Northeast Mycological Foray at different sites each Autumn. Armchair mycophiles should certainly check out the Cornell Mushroom Blog.
To keep up with mushroom-related stuff in the Ithaca area, subscribe to our e-list. It reaches over 200 members, many more than the active membership of the club. You'll receive occasional e-mailings about club activities, mushroom-related events, and other mycophilic news. To subscribe, send an email to me, Kathie Hodge <email@example.com> (please include your full name), and I will add you to the mailing list. Anyone can join our e-list, but it's most appropriate for those who live in or near Ithaca, NY.
