Four Corners Mushroom Club
Contact List /
4cmc began in 2ooo with the goal of supporting mycology
enthusiasts in the Four Corners region.
The Four Corners states (az,nm,co,ut) share a commonality.
Most, in spite of their large area,
have only one NAMA-affiliated mushroom organization for the entire state. (Colorado has two: CMS & PPMS).
Most members of these
state clubs live in or near the state's primary metropolitan area, which hosts
the state club. Each of these states also has a lot of folks who live in smaller
towns and rural areas, individuals who would like to meet with others who share
an interest in mycology, but don't want to travel "half way across the state" to
do so. It is these people I had hoped that 4cmc could support.
The original plan when joining 4cmc was for folks to contact
me with their name, town, and email address, and I would put that
information in a public location, so that other people could contact them.
It was basically a bulletin board. That was then.
I am now going to request that anyone desiring to join 4cmc
NAMA member. Existing 4cmc members
will be "grandfathered in" under the
agreement in place when they joined. New Folks, join NAMA.
Another change is that the publicly available contact list has gone
away. To access Contact lists now requires authentication, which I
provide only to members.
What is NAMA?
I've mentioned NAMA a couple of times already, and you're wondering what
that is. NAMA is the North American
Mycological Association, which has members across Canada and the U.S.,
Mexico, and even some in other parts of the world. 4cmc is one of several
organizations affilited with NAMA.
4cmc: Who May Join / How To Join
As stated above, those wishing to become a 4cmc member should
join NAMA, which they can do at the discounted rate available to members of
Because 4cmc is intended to support mycology enthusiasts in
the Four Corners region, I
would like to limit further 4cmc membership to folks in NAMA's Region 10, which
includes the Four Corners states (az,co,nm,ut) and Wyoming.
I strongly suggest that those outside of the Four Corners area
investigate other NAMA-Affiliated Clubs.
If you wish to join 4cmc, launch me an email message which includes your name,
or city, and state where you live. I will pass this on to NAMA's membership
secretary to let her know that you are elegible to join NAMA at the

new 4cmc members pay for NAMA membership, there is no additioanl fee

suggest the use of certain products or services.
