LAMS is a non-profit group whose purpose is to foster and expand the understanding and appreciation of mycology (that is the study of mushrooms and fungi).
We create and sponsor fun mushroom related events and help people learn about and identify mushrooms they find in the greater Los Angeles area.
More information about LAMS events is available on the Calendar page.
LAMS members will receive an announcement of forays as soon as they are scheduled.
To start or renew your LAMS membership see our Membership page.
You can also help out LAMS by supporting our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a donation.
