Turning a new page. Read the latest newsletter. Welcome to a new production team and colossal thanks to editor Jack Waytz for his many years of leadership.

Who we are. The Northwest Mushroomers Association promotes the understanding and appreciation of mushrooms, furthering the study of fungi, their identification, natural history, ecology and conservation. We serve mushroom enthusiasts in northwest Washington State, including Whatcom, Skagit, and Island Counties.

What we do. Northwest Mushroomers meet the second Thursdays of each month during spring and fall to explore the amazing world of fungi. At our member meetings and other events, you’ll enjoy excellent guest speakers on intriguing topics and participate in hands-on identification of local mushroom specimens. Every October we organize a Wild Mushroom Show celebrating the beauty and diversity of Northwest fungi. In spring, we host a Survivors Banquet in Bellingham and a Mushroom Mayhem outing near Lake Wenatchee. Northwest Mushroomers Association also teaches a yearly mushroom identification class.

Join us. With membership, the whole family can join in group forays, with details sent to members by email. At these forays, we head out together to local haunts to hunt for mushrooms. Our more experienced members share their knowledge of mushroom identification, habitat, and habits with those new to the study of fungi.
