About Us

KPMS is a local non-profit organization of Kitsap Peninsula folks interested in the fascinating world of mycology. Our purpose is to study, collect and appreciate fungi, and to share our knowledge with the community.

Membership requires no special expertise. We have members who enjoy:

  • Hunting for mushrooms.
  • Identifying mushrooms.
  • The science of mushrooms.
  • Cooking with mushrooms.
  • Dyeing with mushrooms.
  • Growing mushrooms.
  • Photographing mushrooms.
  • An excuse to be outdoors.

 
Benefits of membership include monthly educational events, mushroom-picking forays, tasty potlucks, discounts on books, a club library, members-only online forums, and our monthly newsletter.

One of the biggest benefits: the opportunity to learn from people who have hunted the local mushrooms for years.

Unless otherwise credited, photographs on this site are by these KPMS members, each of whom retains the copyright to their own work: Andrew MacMillen, John Blindauer, Mary Middleton, Kathy Dobson, Anita Thielmann and David Ansley.

At our monthly meetings, we hear from scientists, authors, explorers, chefs and outdoors experts. For the next event, check our event calendar.

We also give back to the Kitsap Peninsula community by sharing our knowledge of local habitats.
