Visitors since 1/2009
A non-profit organization whose aims are to provide a means for sharing ideas, experiences, knowledge and common interests regarding fungi, and to furnish mycological information and educational materials to those who wish to increase their knowledge about mushrooms.


It saddens us deeply to announce that
NJMA Treasurer and Trustee
Robert (Bob) Peabody
passed away in September, one day before Fungus Fest 2014.

Bob had been an NJMA member since 1975, and under his leadership,
NJMA took on a broader mission that included scientific and education goals.
He was instrumental in starting the North East Mycological Federation (NEMF),
which holds a regional foray every year.  Bob was an accomplished
natural foods and mushroom forager, and a friend to many of us.

We will miss him.
