Did you know that your Ohio Mushroom Society membership dues were due at the beginning of January, 2020? It’s not too late to renew, and in fact our treasurer has made it easy for anyone to join or renew at any time. Just mail a check to Jerry at the address below and he will take of care of everything. (Not a member yet? We’d love to have you join our ranks! You can find the new membership form here; click on the “Join” tab for more information about membership benefits.)
The OMS is a shoestring operation. All of us on the board are volunteers. All of the foray planning, the newsletter work, the treasury work, the website maintenance, the hospitality at our major forays–all of it is done by people like you who have a passion for mushrooms. Your dues pay only for the paper, printing and mailing of The Mushroom Log newsletter, wax bags, paper plates, name tags, speaker and expert mycologist fees and expenses, and other direct foray expenses. It is a remarkable bargain that we’ve been able to keep dues down to $15/year!
Most of our events for 2020 are currently listed on the Events page of this website. You may notice that there are no April events planned this year, and that is due to our efforts to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
There will be additions to the foray list in the coming months as some details are worked out and new opportunities arise. Check it out, save the dates on your calendar, and plan to join us!
