• Sign up to be a soil survey site by clicking the green box below. Your information will not be shared with others.

    Starting next year we will be taking small samples of soil from various locations around the state - over 100 in total. If you would like to have your property included for consideration, let us know by signing up. You do not need to have woods or any specific types of trees on your property. A simple grass lawn would qualify you. We will be taking small 2" soil cores, 3 times next year. With that small amount of soil, we may be able to detect hundreds, or even thousands of species of fungi by looking at the DNA in the soil. You could know many of the mushrooms that may appear on your property, even if you have not seem them fruiting. Help us quickly discover the biodiversity of mushrooms in our state by helping out with this research.

    BEING A SURVEY SITE DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL HAVE TO ALLOW ANYONE ON YOUR PROPERTY EXCEPT FOR A VERY SMALL GROUP OF RESEARCHERS (2-3 people), FOR LESS THAN AN HOUR, IN THE SPRING, SUMMER, AND FALL.
