MSSF Meetings

Our meetings have moved online. In response to the public health crisis we currently face, the Mycological Society of San Francisco is holding virtual meetings until further notice.

On the third Tuesday of each month from September thru May, the Mycological Society of San Francisco has a General Meeting. It has usually taken place at the Randall Museum. We look forward to future meetings where we can share our fungal finds, enjoy mushroom snacks and engage with speakers in-person. But until then, we are fortunate that technology allows us to to maintain social distance yet still carry on our mission to educate about the kingdom of Fungi.
