From modest beginnings, they have grown over the past 18 years to have currently about 130 members from across Alberta.

    They are a volunteer study group, who's members are fascinated by fungi. They are the only mycological club in Canada's prairie provinces and they provide education to promote an understanding and appreciation of the Kingdom of Fungi. Ongoing activities include the study of the diversity and roles of fungi, providing educational programs to the public, seasonal forays throughout central and western Alberta, an annual mushroom exposition, and the development of lists of fungi from various ecosystems across Alberta.

    Please visit their website at www.wildmushrooms.ws to learn more about the Edmonton Mycological Society and how you can become a member and learn along with them about fungi.
