Welcome to the South Sound Mushroom Club

The South Sound Mushroom Club is dedicated to the finding, identification, and eating of mushrooms. Our primary events are monthly meetings, forays (mushroom hunts) during mushroom seasons, weekend getaways, and participation in local mushroom-related events. You may join the club by paying annual membership dues at a club meeting, foray, or on our Join SSMC page. Please see the "Join SSMC" page for more information.

Mycoflora Project


Please join us for the 1st South Sound Mycoflora Project Foray, Sunday 12:00-3:30PM, April 15th at Millersylvania State Park, Kitchen #3, 12245 Tilley Road South, Olympia, WA


The North America Mycoflora Project is working to build an “encyclopedia” of fungi on our continent. Recently some members of the South Sound Mushroom Club have put together a path for our area mushroom fans to participate. 


We’ve registered the “South Sound Mycoflora Project” and you are most welcome to join in. 


Here’s how it works:


Step One: Read about the North American Mycoflora Project here: http://mycoflora.org


Step Two:  download the iNaturalist app to your cell phone or computer.  Pick a user name and check out postings from others under the “South Sound Mycoflora Project”


Step Three:  Pick up some of the NAMP Field Data Slips at the foray


Step Four: Upload a photo of a fungus you find with the filled-out Field Data Sheet to iNaturalist. You are now a Citizen Scientist helping with the construction of the continent-wide data base. 


Bring your lunch and join us at 12:00 in Kitchen Shelter #3, while we give out instructions and prepare to search. We will then scout the park and then bring back our specimens for ID and logging. 

If you have questions please contact Ellen King Rice or Melodie Gates
