The North Texas Mycological Association was formed in 2021 to bring together the North Texas community and convey awareness of the vital role that fungi have in our ecosystem.

We are dedicated to the scientific study of mushrooms, known as mycology, and wish to gain a better understanding of the local biodiversity found in the North Texas region.

Our organization encompasses everything from mushroom identification, forays, workshops, cultivation, research, and education of all things fungal.

Our members receive exclusive access to discounts from participating sponsors, two forays and events a month when weather is permitting, mushroom identification classes, workshops that include everything from cultivation to culinary recipes to art, and more!

We are dedicated to sustainable foraging and respect our green spaces, public and private.

*Foraging for wild mushrooms on public or private land is illegal in Texas unless you have obtained permission to do so. Foraging at State Parks is never allowed, Park Rangers have given citations to those who disobey the law and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
