Mushroom Hunting (Forays)
Recommended Reading

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.
