The Yakima Valley Mushroom Society is a nonprofit, volunteer-supported organization founded to promote the understanding, enjoyment, cultivation, hunting, and identification of mushrooms and other fungi in a fun and welcoming environment.
We share our knowledge about mushrooms through meetings, classes, workshops, community events, and field trips. People are encouraged to bring mushrooms to monthly meetings to share with the group and for help with identification.
Most members of the YVMS come from throughout the Yakima Valley, with some from as far away as Cle Elum and Goldendale. The group meets at the Selah Heights Grange in Selah, Washington unless otherwise noted. Currently, the YVMS has over 100 members and is growing monthly.
