  • The beginner mushroom class held before each monthly meeting, in the same room as the regular monthly meeting, starting at 6 p.m. This class is restricted to current LAMS members.
  • The Annual Mushroom Fair held in February will be at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden. This event is free after paying for admission to the Arboretum.
