Welcome to YVMS
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.
Regular meetings are held on the third Monday of the month in February, March, April, May, September, and October.
Meetings are typically held at the Selah Grange at 2040 McGonagle Rd in Selah, WA. Doors open at 6:30 pm for networking and mushroom identification. The regular meeting begins at 7:00 pm.
