AMC 2024 Programs

Online Programs

We are continuing AMC's participation in the MycoConsortium of online mushroom talks, which enables us to offer an expanded scope of virtual programming. The time and date of each program will vary so please check the listing. For online programs we are using Zoom. Most talks will be recorded for later viewing. Online programs are a members-only benefit of the Asheville Mushroom Club.

In-person Programs

Our in-person programs will normally start at 6:30 pm in the East Asheville Library conference room. But please check listings for times and dates as some in-person programs might not follow a strict monthly schedule and start time as in previous years.

Site Access and Club Participation

Members must log in to view most pages, menus, links, signup forms and other content on this site. You must be a club member to participate in club activities.

COVID-19

It is important to remember that COVID-19 is still a concern for elderly members. Out of respect for our members who are older or have significant health issues AMC asks that members either maintain social distancing or put on a mask when gathering together indoors, when queuing up to talk with a guest speaker or when gathering around an ID table.

Stay safe and well!
