    Each meeting features a lecture with a variety of speakers from different backgrounds giving presentations on mycology or a related subject. Speakers include nationally known mycologists, outside specialists and knowledgeable members


    Info & Identification

    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.



    We thrive on our volunteers. Bring your Enthusiasm! From Submitting Content such as stories, images , recipes and expertise, or leading guided forays, we are always looking for people to get involved in our society!
