Moira Hunter OKeefe  

Wild Mushrooms are something Moira has been interested in since her first foray as a little girl. She was always fascinated by how unusual and diverse the mushrooms were that her father would bring home and present to her mother to cook.   As a young adult the culinary pull of mushrooms drew Moira back in and, as an adult Master Naturalist volunteer, opportunities once again awakened her to the seemingly endless diversity of mushrooms in Northern Illinois and the rest of the world.  

Moira is a member of the Illinois Mycological Association, the Wisconsin Mycological Society, The Prairie State Mushroom club and the Gulf State Mycological Society, and is certified as a Wild Mushroom Expert by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
