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.
2020 Annual Foray - August 14-16, 2020
The 2020 Annual Foray will be held on the weekend of Friday August 14-16 in the White Mountains. This year we will not be hosting lodging or food service. We are organizing a series of small group forays to learn and collect wild AZ mushrooms. Registration to open up July 22, 2020.
At this time we are planning for a foray that is different than in previous years to minimize the potential risk of Covid-19 transmission. This will involve foregoing large group meals and presentations as we have had in the past.
Our focus will be to provide opportunities for you to participate in a group foray to learn about local, wild mushrooms.
Information on registration, nearby lodging, and other event details is located here.
AMS HATS & SHIRTS AVAILABLE
The Society has arranged for some spiffy new AMS apparel. These soft, brushed-cotton caps have an embroidered logo that really pops. They come in black, navy, khaki, and gray.
You can buy them online for $25 plus postage, or pick them up at SailorFish Embroidery in Scottsdale and save on shipping costs. We will also be bringing some to the AMS Annual Foray for the same price.
We also have some top quality polo shirts that you can get with the same embroidered logo.
Part of your purchase comes back to the Society to support our educational, scientific, charitable, and recreational programs.
Flagstaff forays and Mushroom Overnighter - August 22, 2020
We have set-up a series of small group forays (10 people or less) for Saturday, August 22 in the Flagstaff area. For more information about the small group forays, visit the event webpage here.
We have also created a special opportunity for a few lucky AMS members to rent a cabin or yurt at the Nordic Center and enjoy a gourmet wild mushroom meal cooked by local chefs from Coppa Cafe and Square Root Burger.
Due to the need to maintain small group sized, there are very limited spots for each of these events. Registration for both of these events will open August 1.
