Knowledgeable members will be happy to help you identify the mushrooms you have found. Visitors & members are encouraged to bring the mushrooms they find to the meetings.



Guided Forays

Throughout the summer our society schedules guided forays to bring members into the wild to search for mushrooms. From March through October, these expert lead outings can be held high in the mountains or in our city parks. Please keep an eye out for scheduled  forays as they are posted throughout the summer.
