Wild-foraged Mushroom Identification Certification Program

Working in partnership with the Michigan Farmers Market Association and the Institute for Sustainable Living, Art & Natural Design, and in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD), MAMI has designed a workshop program that, if successfully completed, will qualify you as an expert mushroom identifier. This program will help you understand and meet Michigan's regulations regarding the sale of wild-foraged mushrooms. Through this workshop, you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the varieties of wild mushrooms that may be collected and sold in Michigan, meet with noted mycologists, review mushroom identification, become acquainted with MDARD regulations, and much more. At the end of the workshop you will be administered a test which, if successfully completed, will qualify you to receive a Expert Mushroom Identifier card issued by MDARD.
