The MSSF website was the first mushroom club website in North America. The Mycological Society of San Francisco was founded in 1950 to promote the understanding and enjoyment of mushrooms and other fungi. Our mission has since expanded to preserve mycological habitats and to promote and maintain the rights of the general public to collect mushrooms for study and recreational purposes on public lands. Our expert taxonomists often consult with open space management agencies to identify the fungi which are found on these lands.Each December, the MSSF creates an extensive Fungus Fair, where we collect, identify and display hundreds of mushroom species from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and points north and south. At the heart of MSSF activities are forays for identification and collection of mushrooms. Throughout the year we offer numerous camping forays and single-day mushroom walks. On occasion we conduct weekend mycological retreats with forays, culinary fare, identification, workshops, talks and slide presentations.The MSSF is also active in promoting mycological education and research.
