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!

Annual Holiday Party and Cookie Bash
MEMBERS ONLY this month!

Food: December's membership meeting is once again our famous "Cookie Bash", hosted by your very own Board of Trustees. Please bring a plate of hors d'oeuvres, a casserole, baked goods or other treats, and/or a dessert (cookies!) to share. Also bring your favorite beverage or wine (we will have a banquet permit); put on your best fungal-themed jewelry, attire, and/or hats; and be prepared to have a great time. This is a family event, so children are welcome.

PHOTOS: Members are invited to contribute up to 5 photos that they would like to share and discuss. They will be loaded into the PSMS laptop before the meeting to be projected. Short video presentations on a DVD format are also welcome. Please email these photos to Daniel Winkler at me@danielwinkler.com prior to December 2nd to be included in the program.

Door Prizes and Edible Art Contest. Release your inner Myco-Angelo (expression coined by Milton Tam) and enter our annual edible mushroom art contest. Prizes will be awarded by popular acclaim, and entries may be consumed after the votes are in. The theme for your creation this year is "The Beauty of Fungi". Arrive at 6:30 pm to set up your work of edible art. We will have prizes for the top three winners.

Reserved Seating. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Reserved seats will be held till 7:45 pm. Any empty seats remaining at 7:45 pm will be given to any PSMS members who are waiting at the door at that time. Space is very limited so sign up early. People who do not have reservations may not be able to be seated.
