How much does it cost to join?

There is no cost to join. Membership in the Berkshire Mycological Society is absolutely free.

 We are currently beginning the process of moving away from maintaining an e-mail list.  The new plan is to post a list on this website with the places, times, and dates that we will be picking.

Please see the page Upcoming BMS Mushroom Hunts on this site for information.

Please visit the Maps page to see if there is a relevant map for any particular walk posted.

If you would like to join us, please do.  Be prepared for the outdoors, and for taking care of yourself when it comes to appropriate footwear, bug spray, collecting baskets, navigation, and rain gear.

What are the benefits of membership?
There aren't any. No newsletter, no 10% discounts, no nothing. You get what you pay for. You can come with us and pick mushrooms, and help ID them, and learn about them.

How is the club organized?

The club is no longer organized at all.  It is unorganized.  Just show up.

We usually pick mushrooms within 20 miles of Great Barrington- our spiritual center.

What if I desperately want to send you e-mail?
