Welcome

Read our recent newsletter, MushRumors: August 2014.

The Northwest Mushroomers Association has promoted the understanding and appreciation of mushrooms since 1989, furthering the study of mycology and ecology. We serve mushroom enthusiasts in northwest Washington state, including Whatcom, Skagit, and Island counties.

Northwest Mushroomers 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.

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. Each fall, we also teach a mushroom identification class for members. 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 to members by email. At these forays, our more experienced members share their knowledge of mushroom identification, habitat, and habits with those new to the study of fungi. Join us – join the Northwest Mushroomers!
