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.

Longtime Merritt College teacher Ron Felzer helped blaze the trail of environmental education with hundreds of field seminars he's taught since the 1970s. Felzer is semi-retired now, but he and other field educators at Merritt are facing the hardest budget struggles Felzer's ever known, with fewer and fewer classes making it onto the college's schedule.
