Boston Mycological Club

Who's in the BMC?

The Club attracts members from all professions, ethnicities, and ages. Their mushroom interests are just as varied.

Some join to satisfy their interest in botany, or a penchant for scientific classification. Many want to indulge their curiosity about the beautiful, but unfamiliar, fungi they have seen in their gardens or woods. Others want to perpetuate their families' heritage. We have artists, ecologists, fabric dyers, home cooks, and general nature lovers among the 500 Club members.

Regardless of their individual specialties, BMC members find their interests nurtured in the company of like-minded people. In fact, mushrooms are only part of the Club experience; our members are equally engaging.
