NMMS Upcoming Meetings & Events

May 8, 2022 ▪ 2:00 - 4:00pm  Albuquerque Garden Center

"Reflections on Poisonous Mushrooms"

This is a pre-recorded NAMA presentation. 

Dr. Michael Beug, Ph.D. will show images of the main mushrooms that have caused poisonings and will discuss the mistakes that various people have made that led them to eat a poisonous mushroom, the severity of the poisonings, the symptoms and the prognosis for recovery. He will focus on human poisonings but will also discuss animal poisonings, especially dogs who seem to have a great propensity for consumption of toxic mushrooms.

New members are always welcome at any meeting.  Current members will receive a reminder email.
