NAMA Annual Forays

For over 45 years NAMA has sponsored forays that have recorded species occurrence across the continent. Beginning in 1997, species are now being documented by voucher specimens. The collection data, photographs, and dried specimens are housed at The Field Museum, Department of Botany Herbarium. These vouchered records are providing data on the distribution of macrofungi in North America and serve as a resource for further studies. Learn more about the NAMA Voucher Collection Project.
