The Mushroom Society of Utah's events follow the mushroom seasons.

During the off-season, we host our Winter Speaker Series where we invite guest speakers from within and outside of the state to give lectures on their field of study. These talks are great opportunities to keep up with the quick-moving pace of mycological advancements and learn about niche corners of the fungal world.

In the spring, to get ready for foraging season, we offer our Spring Summit, an educational crash-course for members who are new to foraging. During this time, we also focus on social events for our community to come together before we're all in the mountains for the season!

Summer is for forays! Throughout the months of June, July, and August, volunteers within MSU lead small group mushroom-hunting trips. Forays are a fantastic way to learn from the community, meet new folk with your shared interest, and gain experience in foraging and identification. 

At the peak of our fall mushroom season (and season of our state mushroom, the Boletus edulis), we hold a weekend-long event full of fungal-focused lectures, workshops, forays, and fun! The Fall Foray is our biggest and most involved event of the year—you don't want to miss it!
