Bay Area Mycological Society
BAMS is dedicated to increasing knowledge of and appreciation for the wonderful world of mushrooms.
We teach the safe and mindful collection of mushrooms, through field trips, lectures and classes, references and an online pool of local experts. We encourage the celebration of the beauty and wonder of mushrooms through photography and illustration, poetry and prose.
We foster participation in "citizen science," where amateurs can contribute in meaningful ways to the advance of mushroom knowledge.
We encourage cooperation and collegiality between the many mushroom societies of Northern California, and believe that the synergy of many talented individuals help to make a greater whole.
