• Amanita muscaria near Mt Baker

Since 1989, the Northwest Mushroomers Association has promoted the understanding and appreciation of mushrooms to further the study of mycology in northwest Washington state, including Whatcom, Skagit, and Island counties.

We meet the second Thursdays of each month during spring and fall to explore the amazing world of fungi. At our member meetings you’ll enjoy excellent guest speakers, some from far afield and some from our own ranks, as well as hands-on mushroom specimens to share and identify. Read our latest newsletter, MushRumors: June 2014.

See our events and full list of 2014 member meeting speakers and topics.

Each fall, we put on a Wild Mushroom Show celebrating Northwest mushrooms and their natural habits and habitats. We also teach a fall-season mushroom identification class for members of the Northwest Mushroomers.

Each spring, Northwest Mushroomers sponsor a Survivors Banquet in Bellingham and a Morel Madness outing near Lake Wenatchee.

Members join in group forays, with details sent by email. At these forays, our more experienced members share their knowledge of mushroom identification, habitat, and ecosystems with less experienced members. Join us – join the Northwest Mushroomers!
