Spring Mushroom Season

We are approaching the spring field trip season! Field trips are announced via email to current OMS members. Most field trips are limited to 20 participants. If the season allows, we may have some “open” field trips that are not limited in number. Field trips are dependent on weather and fruiting conditions as well as the availability of identifiers and field trip organizers.

Many areas require a free use mushroom permit. OMS members should get their permits well before deciding to attend a field trip as many ranger stations are not open on weekends. See the Field Trip page for more information about permits.

The Gifford Pinchot Forest now offers online permits. Click here for a link to their online permit page.
