Meeting Place and Time
Traditional "In Person" classes are currently on hold, but we have created "Mushroom Slide Share" events. These events are on the 3rd Mondays of the month (October to May, except February due to Fungus Fair) from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., preceding the regular LAMS meetings. Current meetings are hosted online using Zoom.
The monthly class, which is led by LAMS Members Florence Nishida and David Bermudes, covers mushroom identification for beginners as well as advanced mushroomers. Anyone is welcome to share their mushroom specimens for discussion and possible identification.
Suggested field guides are:
The class uses actual mushrooms collected by LAMS members and class participants as material for identification, as well as using books, drawings and photographs.
In addition to mushroom identification and the Griffith Park survey, the Beginner And Intermediate Mushroom Class also serves as a forum for the LAMS Mushroom Fair, organized by Vanessa Gamboa and other LAMS events organized by John Thropay.
