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!

Upcoming Events

Saturday Mar. 11 - 7:30pm

PSMS Survivors' Banquet & Annual Business Meeting

This replaces our March general membership meeting. Doors open at 6:30 pm at the Center for Urban Horticulture.

It's time again to gather and congratulate each other for making it through another season of finding, cooking, and eating mushrooms. Click here to sign-up online. Seating will be limited, so register early to guarantee your place. You must be pre-registered to attend. The cost is $5/person to cover incidentals. As in previous years, the event will be a potluck dinner for PSMS members only, but if your significant other or dinner partner is not a member, you can still include them. We will have a banquet permit, so bring your favorite wine or beer, but no hard liquor, please!

Our banquet theme this year is "A Late Winter's Pick-Nic." For this potluck dinner we encourage you to bring your best picnic-worthy dishes featuring mushrooms, wild or cultivated, and come dressed in your best field-trip attire. Please label your contributions with the ingredients and species of mushrooms used, if any. We will have a short presentation (or two), introduce the newly elected board members and officers for 2017-2019, announce the winner of the 2017 Patrice Benson Golden Mushroom Award for outstanding service to our society, and hand out a few door prizes. This promises to be a fun evening with friends and family, so come join us! Raffle tickets for an original watercolor by Russian artist Alexander (Sasha) Viazmensky will also be available for purchase. Questions? Please write: outreach@psms.org.
