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.

Throughout the summer our society schedules guided forays to bring members into the wild to search for mushrooms. From June through September, 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!
