Although CMS meetings are open to the public, non-CMS members may now be required to pay the Denver Botanic Gardens entrance fee (adults, $12.50). Tell the gatekeeper you are going to a meeting. Current CMS members will not need to pay to enter the Gardens (In the future, you may possibly be asked to show your CMS membership card or say that you're a current member of CMS when entering the Gardens for a CMS meeting).
Full Schedule Keep your eye here and on the schedule. Always check the day before the foray.

Call for Volunteers for CMS — The Colorado Mycological
Society depends on volunteers from the membership to deliver its
services to the general membership. Many, if not most, of the volunteer
positions do not require extensive knowledge of mycology. What
they do require is enthusiasm and a willingness to
devote a few hours each month to the position.
Although most of
the committees currently have chairpersons assigned to them, there
are still a few that require a chairperson. If you would like to
volunteer for one of these "open" committee positions,
contact Karen Ryan by phone at 303-355-5966 or
If you would like to serve on a committee that is currently chaired
or obtain more information about the activities of the committee,
contact the chairperson directly.
