It is because of my love and enjoyment in hunting mushrooms that I am bringing you this site.

Chris Matherly book photo I have hunted mushrooms since I was 5 years old, (at that time, stepped on a lot), and been doing it ever since. Mushroom hunting seems to get in your blood, once you do it a few times, you are addicted. I enjoy just traipsing through the woods, and the excitement of finding the mushrooms, and, of course, EATING them! It is like adult Easter-Egg Hunting, so exciting and fulfilling and truly a “Green” activity. This site is directed to help you enjoy your ‘Shroomin’ also! Enjoy!

I also strongly encourage members to give as much of their own personal input as possible. I would like everyone to really get involved. We all can learn a lot. There are a great deal of “Free” activities and information on this page, and even several things that you can get involved with without actually joining the club. However, I certainly would encourage you to join and become a part of a growing and fun-filled club. We have a lot going on all year long, even during the off season for mushrooms. I also really get into all edibles, not just Morels, so many other great tasting and medicinal mushrooms growing out in the woods! Hen-Of-The-Woods for example can shrink tumors, lower blood pressure, and build your immune system, plus it is very delicious! Lion’s Mane, Chanterelles, Lobster Mushrooms, King Boletes (Porcini), Oyster Mushrooms, Puffballs, Chicken-Of-The-Woods, and Cauliflower Mushrooms are just a handful that we discuss on the site and have recipes for! If you ever have any questions, just email me. chrismathe@aol.com

Please Note: This page is a public access free page. Use info on this page and enjoy. The member areas have literally 1000’s of mushroom photos, mushroom recipes, mushroom videos, mushroom hunting tips and info, newsletters, chat room, places to hunt wild mushrooms, and just about everything else you can imagine relating to wild mushrooms, not just morels. By joining this club, you will have unlimited access to all of the member areas for your benefit, but most importantly, you will be helping to support this website. We now have a network of over 1000 members worldwide and in all 50 states. As a member, you also can participate in any of the Mushroom Hunting Forays. These Guided mushroom hunts have been experiences of a lifetime for many, and many new friends are always made.

Sincerely, Chris Matherly
