The Bay Area Mycological Society (BAMS), established in 2006, is dedicated to the art and science of mushrooms.

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 hold monthly meetings on a wide range of educational topics. We hold local and long distance forays, participate in the Yosemite National Park Fungal Survey, and organize the Point Reyes Fungus Fairs and All California Club Forays.

We are affiliated with the North American Mycological Association. We host a lively online discussion group. Our members range from beginners to professionals in the field. We believe that everyone wants to learn, and has ideas to share.
