About

The Wyoming Valley Mushroom Club, an affiliate of the North American Mycological Association, exists to inform and educate individuals on all aspects of wild mushrooms:

WVMC membership is open to ANYONE interested in wild mushrooms and other fungi related topics. Experience and knowledge can range from beginner to expert. While a large portion of the membership is interested in the culinary aspect, members also have specialized and diverse skills in such things as taxonomy, photography, & medicinal uses.

The yearly membership period is from Oct 01 to Sept 30.  The cost for the year is $15.00 for an individual membership, and $20.00 for a family membership. Dues-paying members may also then join our closed Facebook group. 

If interested, please attend our next meeting (see below) , or email wyomingvalleymushroomclub@gmail.com

 

Hear from some of our members!

Meet a few of our Mushroom Club members and hear about the interests that led them to join the club.
