If you want a postal newsletter, the membership dues are $35 for students, $40 for individuals, and $45 for households. Memberships are on a calendar year basis and renewals are due in January of each year.  For those joining on or after October 1, new memberships are good through the following year.

MMS Membership benefits include:

  • Organized collecting trips during the mushroom fruiting season
  • Quarterly newsletter updating members on club events and topical news
  • Lectures by invited mycologists and experts
  • Identification workshops

If you are new to the MMS or have been a member in the past but do not have a currently active membership, you must fill out and submit the MMS New Membership Form.  Complete the application, sign the included waiver and mail with your check(s) to the address listed or bring to one of our meetings. We require everyone who participates in MMS activities to read and sign the waiver that is included with the membership form. This waiver protects you and the MMS by informing you of the potential risks involved.
