LAMS is a non-profit group whose purpose is to foster and expand the understanding and appreciation of mycology (that is the study of mushrooms and fungi).

We create and sponsor fun mushroom related events and help people learn about and identify mushrooms they find in the greater Los Angeles area.


April 20 (Monday) 7:30 PM LAMS General Meeting


Please see the Directions page for an important update regarding a changed access route to the Times-Mirror Meeting Room.

Speaker:  Danny Miller, Puget Sound Mycological Society

Program: "Mushroom Mythbusters, or Fungal Fables Debunked"


Danny Miller

Mushroom Mythbusters, or Fungal Fables Debunked - an entertaining look at common misconceptions about mushrooms and the truth behind the rumors.

Danny Miller first got interested in Mushrooms in 2007 after seeing strange colorful creatures in the forest all the time while hiking and skiing off trail, and finally decided he had to find out what they were. The more he learned, the more interesting they seemed, and it just hasn't stopped.


More information about LAMS events, including a biography of the speaker, is available on the Calendar page.
