The Arizona Mushroom Society, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt/tax-deductible non-profit Arizona corporation, and is the state affiliate of the North American Mycological Association. We offer a variety of forays, educational meetings, dinners, and other events designed to appeal to novices and experienced mushroom hunters alike.
The 2023 Arizona Mushroom Society Annual Foray Species List is now available!
This list was compiled by Scientific Committee Chairperson, Terri Clements with contributions from those who contributed to observations on iNaturalist, foray participants, and the foray leaders. This year's list includes information including denotation of those species that were previously DNA sequenced in this state.
AMS member contributions provide the support necessary to do this DNA sequencing to find out if the fungi here are similar to those in other areas or if they are unique to Arizona or our region.
Part of the Arizona Mushroom Society mission is to bring light to the dark depths of the fungal world and contribute to the scientific understanding of our local Arizona funga.
In Arizona, our mushroom seasons can be short, but AMS members can explore and learn more about fungi all year long!
The Arizona Mushroom Society provides events such as forays, dinners, and lectures on a variety of subjects. In the off-season, members can look forward to Zoom meetings with artists, mycologists, chefs, and other professionals who work with mushrooms and share their unique and often inspiring knowledge with us!
