The Mission of the Cascade Mycological Society is:
- to study fungi;
- to educate members and the public about fungi identification and ecology;
- to promote conservation of fungi;
- to promote health and safety in the gathering and consumption of edible fungi, and last and importantly;
- to have fun!
The Cascade Mycological Society (CMS) was created by a collective effort of people who share a common interest in and appreciation for the Kingdom of Fungi. In order to focus our fungal fascination, we have formed an educational non-profit [501(c) 3] organization dedicated to the study and enjoyment of fungi and we would like you to join us.
CMS currently meets at the Amazon Community Center (map) on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 7 pm to 9 pm (September through May). Meetings are free and open to the public. There will be a mushroom identification session prior to the speaker. Bring what’s in your basket, edible or not, and learn from the experienced members of our community. To learn about the upcoming meeting and speaker, check our Home Page.
CMS provides fungal events throughout the year, including the Mushroom Festival, field trips and forays, and research and education projects.
