Join the Hunt

Contribute to our growing mushroom database by uploading observations of mushrooms that you find growing in your local area—be it a park, the woods, or even your backyard. Our site is geared towards students, mushroom aficionados, and experts who are looking for an easy way to create field observations and who understand the benefit of shared scientific knowledge.

Offline Support

If you are reading this on a mobile device such as a smartphone, you can easily create mushroom observations right from your device, even if you are not connected to the Internet. This makes it easy to log mushroom sightings when you are out in the woods. Our app will simply save your observations to your device so that you can upload them later once you have an Internet connection.

Sync with Mushroom Observer

If you have a Mushroom Observer account, you can easily sync observations made on Mushroom Mapper to your Mushroom Observer account. Learn how.
