Arizona Mushroom Club

Welcome to the Arizona Mushroom Club

Purpose and Goals of the Club

The Arizona Mushroom Club is a social organization. The members include professional mycologists as well as novices. Members partake in outings to find fungi, identify the fungi and enjoy the edible fruits of Arizona’s fungi. We have forays in the Spring for morels. That is followed in the summer and early fall forays in the mountains for the many edible mushroom species that grow there. Training meetings are held when there is a demand. The year is capped with an annual pot-luck in December where Club business is conducted. Membership in our Club is open to all except those who have a commercial interest in edible mushrooms.


Arizona Mushroom Club
OCTOBER 11th, 2014

A ONE DAY MUSHROOM FORAY has been scheduled by Dr. Leathers for OCTOBER 11th, 2014.

Please remember that this foray is to educate our members about the various species of mushrooms growing in Arizona and not to harvest the maximum number available or try to beat everyone to them. Our members both current and former are asked to refrain from foraging in known club locations prior to the foray so that we may maximize our educational opportunities.

All club members were notified via email about the details of this foray. If you did not receive the email, or if you would like to join the Arizona Mushroom Club, contact Membership at
