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.


December 21 (Monday)  7:30 PM  LAMS General Meeting

Please see the Directions page for an important update (October 2015) regarding a changed access route to the Times-Mirror Meeting Room.

Speaker:  Larry Evans

Program: "Intercontinental Mushrooms: Mushrooms from Canada to Argentina"


Larry Evans

Talk Summary: "Based on my life in Montana and travels in South America, we will look at cosmopolitan mushrooms that live in the Andes and the Rockies, in the Amazon and the USA, and we will look at the mushrooms that have adapted to unique niches like deserts and subalpine zones, and on unique substrates like insects, other fungi, and petroleum."

Biographical information about the speaker is on the Calendar page.

No LAMS forays are scheduled at this time, due to dry weather.
