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.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the hot, dry summer, LAMS (and most Southern California mushrooms) have entered a period of estivation.  There will be no further events on the LAMS public calendar until the general meeting in October.  Updates to this web page are unlikely before September.

October 15 (Monday) LAMS General Meeting

Speaker and program to be announced in September

Due to dry weather, no LAMS forays are scheduled at this timeLAMS members will receive an announcement of forays as soon as they are scheduled.

You can now join LAMS or renew your current membership, using our convenient and secure PayPal online payment option.
