WVMS is striving to rebuild in 2021. Please see our scheduled events below.
We'd be happy to see you at one of our upcoming events.
Willamette Valley Mushroom Society meets on the FIRST Monday of every month except January, July, August, and September. Mushroom ID and a short business meeting start at 6:30 pm and the program begins at 7pm. These meetings will be held on Zoom through June 2021. Our board will meet after that to discuss online vs. in-person meetings.
Willamette Valley Mushroom Society has a potluck open to Members and their guests. Potlucks are held in February and August. We ask that everyone brings a fabled dish to share, your own plates, utensils (since we are trying to reduce our waste) and appetites! Contact the Hospitality Director if you want to volunteer to help out. Locations TBA, check the event description.
Willamette Valley Mushroom Society encourages members to attend board meetings. This is where the elected board discusses club business, events, budget, membership and other administrative duties that make our club what it is. If you have a comment or suggestion for our board, please contact us in the Member's area or via the contact page. Locations for the board meetings are in locations TBA. Check with the event listing for a contact.
