    Due to the indefatigable efforts of AMS member and fundraiser extraordinaire, Beth Bilodeau, the Arizona Mushroom Society is celebrating the end of this horrible, terrible, no good, very bad year with an online auction.


    This is your chance to get that unique Christmas or holiday gift for someone special in your life. Heck, many of the items will be so cool and reasonably priced that you may want to get a couple for yourself as well. You deserve it! You somehow survived this crapshoot year!

    The Silent Auction will begin on black Friday, November 27, 2020 and run until 10:00 p.m. Friday, December 11, 2020.


    We will have options to pick-up baskets you have won the bid on in Phoenix and Tucson on Saturday, December 12, 2020; and in Flagstaff on December 13, 2020. Baskets can be shipped with shipping costs added.

    All items must go!

    All auction items are not available to browse and check out here. The bidding starts on November 27th. 

    Please contact us with any questions.

    Our annual meeting and elections will be held this year on Saturday, December 5, 2020. AMS President, Mike Dechter, will be stepping down after three years of service and the positions of board members Terri Clements, Chris May, and Kathy Babcock will be up for re-election.

    AMS is an all volunteer organization. We need your help to keep this organization alive and to help serve our core mission of education, scientific discovery, and charitable giving. If you are interested in running for the board or for President, please contact Mike Dechter.

    More information about elections and the annual meeting will be available in mid-November.

    Successful mushroom hunting is part luck, part skill, and part research. In Arizona, the research is all about finding out where precipitation has accumulated for your best chances to find those fabulous fungi you have been dreaming about.


    The thing about the southwest is that precipitation events are unpredictable and extremely variable. It is not uncommon for one side of a mountain to get totally drenched while the other side stays disappointingly dry. So, what is an eager mushroom hunter to do?

    Here is your chance to learn the tools to figure out where recent rains have fallen or where the best winter snowpack accumulation in the state was last winter. 

    On December 9, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. we will chat via Zoom with Andrew Taylor, Science and Operations Officer, from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Weather Service office in Flagstaff, AZ. Andrew will tell us a little bit about what he and his coworkers do and share the tools available to us for viewing and tracking recent precipitation in the region.

    We'll also get an opportunity for a little Q&A to get your burning weather questions quenched. 

    Please register to get a Zoom link to join us.
