Interested in Volunteering?
Mushroom Display: Volunteers are needed to help with the labeling and setup of the Cascade Mycological Society Mushroom Display. This process goes on all day, from morning until night. It is an exciting and invaluable way to learn about the mushrooms that fruit in our region. Volunteers are also needed to hang posters and signs, set up educational displays, and organize the CMS booth and moon stage. Contact Peg Boulay to volunteer for any part of a shift.
Staff the CMS booth, Help with Culinary Talks or Staff the Membership Table: Help share the fungal fun – booth volunteers talk to people about the CMS mission and upcoming events. You can also help sell t-shirts, mushroom earrings, and the new wild mushroom cookbook, all which go to support CMS activities and scholarship funds. Culinary Talks volunteers help promote the talks and seat audience members. Membership Table volunteers help people become CMS members and answer questions. Sign up for a shift here.
Volunteers receive free admission to the festival and help to support the efforts of the arboretum!
