Expect to be AMAZED during the Yakima Valley Mushroom Society's annual Wild Mushroom Show.

Mushrooms collected from around the region will be on display and each will be identified and classified as edible, poisonous, or valueless as food.  Expect to see up to 100 different kinds of mushrooms.

Exhibits will include mushroom habitats and displays, photography exhibits, as well as a great selection of items for sale like mushroom field guides.  Plus, learn more about the benefits of being a Yakima Valley Mushroom Society member.

Visitors are encouraged to bring in their own mushrooms for identification by YVMS members during the show as well as mushrooms to be exhibited during Mushroom Show 2011the event by dropping them off before the show on Saturday.*  Be sure to collect the entire mushroom, including underground parts.  Please be respectful of mushroom habitats.

*All mushrooms intended for official display during the show should be dropped off Saturday, October 26 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the Arboretum's Harold Jones Building/garage down the road from the Jewett Center.

The YVMS is looking for:Mushroom Show Tray

  • Every kind of fungi, from mushrooms found in your lawn, to out in the woods.
  • Collect the mushroom and its attached root.  
  • If you find mushrooms attached to small branches, rocks, logs, or vegetation bring it all in attached for display.
  • Mushrooms at all stages of growth, especially if you are able to find one variety from just popping up to old and dying out.  

All mushrooms on display will be identified by experienced members of the YVMS and composted at the Arboretum after the Show.
