Our Mission


Our meetings through April are scheduled to be virtual meetings live streamed to the CMS YouTube channel. Our May meeting is scheduled for in person at the Amazon Community Center (and live streamed). We will continue to have members only forays once there is some spring mushroom action. Everything is subject to change based upon updated CDC guidance.

Welcome to the Cascade Mycological Society (CMS)! We are an educational non-profit located in the Eugene/ Springfield area of Oregon dedicated to the study and enjoyment of fungi. Please enjoy the video below to see the types of activities that we do. Then, explore the rest of the website to learn more about CMS and the fascinating world of fungi!

Mushroom Festival

The Mount Pisgah Arboretum (MPA) Mushroom Festival is the largest educational event of the year for the Cascade Mycological Society.  We have been involved since its inception in 1981 and are integral to its success.
