The Bay Area Mycological Society is dedicated to increasing knowledge of and appreciation for the wonderful world of mushrooms. We teach the safe and mindful collection of mushrooms through field trips, lectures and classes, references, and an online pool of local experts. We encourage the celebration of the beauty and wonder of mushrooms through photography and illustration, poetry and prose. We foster participation in "citizen science," where amateurs can contribute in meaningful ways to the advance of mushroom knowledge, and our members range from beginners to professionals in the field.
