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. In spring we host a Survivors Banquet in Bellingham and a Mushroom Mayhem outing east of the Cascades, and in October we organize a Wild Mushroom Show near Lake Whatcom celebrating the beauty and diversity of Northwest fungi. Northwest Mushroomers Association also offers a yearly mushroom identification class to members.

Join us. With membership, the whole family can participate in group forays. More experienced members share their knowledge of mushroom ID, habitat, and habits with those new to the study of fungi. Event and foray details are sent to members by email. Join us as we venture together to local haunts on a hunt for mushrooms.
