Welcome to PSMS!

We are an organization that encourages the research, education, cultivation, hunting, identification and the cooking of mushrooms. With over 1,200 members, PSMS
is one of the largest mycological societies in the country.

We share our knowledge about mushrooms through meetings, classes, workshops and field trips.

Please join us at a meeting or become a member today!

PSMS Monthly Meeting

Special Holiday Extravaganza and Cookie Bash

Doors open at 6:30 pm at the Center for Urban Horticulture.

As in the past, the December meeting features a members-only holiday extravaganza (aka the Cookie Bash) hosted by the PSMS Board of Trustees. We encourage you to wear your most festive fungal-themed attire (jewelry, hats, etc.).

Food: The entree will be provided. We ask that everyone bring a contribution (potluck style) for hors d'oeuvres, salads, side dishes, baked goods, desserts, or other treats! When you register for the meeting, sign up for your preferred category.

Registration and Fee: As space is limited, pre-registration is required. Register here. To defray the cost of the entree, there is a $5 registration fee (no refunds). Doors open at 6:30 pm for socializing. People who do not have reservations will not be seated.

Door Prizes and Edible Art Contest: In keeping with our tradition, there will be an edible art contest with winning prizes for the top three entries determined by popular vote! Potluck entries that look most like mushrooms or have a mushroom theme can be entered into this contest. Entries will be consumed after the votes are in! This year's theme is "The Fungus among Us." If you need time to set up your entries in the contest, you can arrive at 6:30 pm. As always in consideration of our members who have allergies, please list your ingredients in your potluck or edible art contribution on a small card. Those over 21 may bring their favorite wine or beer (we will have a banquet permit).

Photos for the Program: There is no speaker, and we rely on our members for entertainment! We love to hear new and familiar voices and see your favorite mushroom-related pictures. You are invited to contribute up to fve digital photos to share and narrate. The photos will be inserted into a Power Point presentation before the meeting. Short video presentations on DVD format are also welcome. Please email your photos to Paul Hill at photography@psms.org by December 7th to be included in the program.

See you at the extravaganza!
