Membership Benefits

  • Attend AMC forays. Membership is REQUIRED for foray participation.

    To sign up for spring Morel forays you must be a member by March 1st!

  • Members-only AMC events, classes and the annual Christmas party.
  • Monthly newsletter, which includes foray details and educational info.
  • Discounts on NAMA membership and AMC merchandise such as T-shirts and cook books.


Starting sometime in 2020 we will have our own forum integrated into the website. This forum will be mostly for members. As you may know, Yahoo groups has been discontinued, so we have decided moving the forum to our website will be another perk of becoming a member.

NAMA Membership

AMC is affiliated with the North American Mycological Association (NAMA) whose purpose is to promote, pursue, and advance the science of mycology. Members of our club receive a discount on NAMA dues. NAMA membership provides you with a newsletter and yearly magazine and entitles you to attend NAMA-sponsored forays around the country. Contact:
