The Arizona Mushroom Society, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt/tax-deductible non-profit Arizona corporation, and is the state affiliate of the North American Mycological Association. We offer a variety of forays, educational meetings, dinners, and other events designed to appeal to novices and experienced mushroom hunters alike. 


Our society and the North American Mycological Association are hosting the 2017 Arizona Regional Foray in the White Mountains on August 10-13. Learn in depth from Arizona mushroom expert Dr. Scott Bates, Agaricus guru Dr. Rick Kerrigan, and other national experts. 

UPDATE 6/3: This foray has now filled. We are sorry if you missed out, but you can put your name on the waiting list at the event registration page. Perhaps you would like to come to the AMS Annual Foray instead.


We will soon open registrations for our 2017 Annual Foray, taking place the first weekend in August, 8/4-8/6/2017. We are doing things a bit differently this year, since the NAMA Regional Foray in the White Mountains will occur the very next weekend. The AMS foray will meet on the Mogollon Rim, a little closer to home for most of us. We will have a potluck supper, bonfire, and fun for the whole family, like the clay models of well-known species (pictured above) that Mike Goodwin is preparing for educational purposes. We have a group campsite that can accommodate up to 75 people. More details soon!

Update 7/31: Open enrollment has been suspended as we have reached the maximum number of participants for both the Saturday and Sunday foray. You are welcome to join us for camping and dining on either night. Please register yourself for the waiting list and we will add you manually. 

Pick & Cook Registration

On April 2, just after midnight, registrations will open for the Pick & Cook foray led by Mike Dechter on the Nature Conservancy's Hart Prairie Preserve. This event is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017. 

For the first day of open registrations, only members who have not yet had a chance to go on any foray this year will be given access, via a special code that will be sent to them via e-mail beforehand.

Once a full day has passed and the date has rolled over to August 3, any member will be able to register.

This is your chance to try small nibbles of various edibles that you might not otherwise have tried, with the goal of identifying those you'd like to explore further with a full taste test.
