CMS Meetings:

  • Meetings are held on the second Monday night of each month, from March through October, at 7:30 PM. The doors open at 7:00. This year we are back at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1007 York Street (Map). The meetings are in Mitchell Hall. There is no charge to get into the Botanic Gardens in the evening to attend a CMS meeting.

  • CMS meetings provide an informal opportunity to socialize and exchange information with others interested in mycology.

  • Each meeting features a lecture and/or slide presentation on mycology or a related subject.

  • Speakers include nationally known mycologists, outside specialists and knowledgeable members

  • Visitors & members are encouraged to bring the mushrooms they find to the meetings.

  • Knowledgeable members will be happy to help you identify the mushrooms you have found.

A Call for Volunteers for CMS — The Colorado Mycological Society depends on volunteers from the membership to deliver its services to the general membership. Many, if not most, of the volunteer positions do not require extensive knowledge of mycology. What they do require is enthusiasm and a willingness to devote a few hours each month to the position.

Although most of the committees currently have chairpersons assigned to them, there are still a few that require a chairperson. If you would like to volunteer for one of these "open" committee positions, contact Karen Ryan by phone at 303-355-5966 or by email).

If you would like to serve on a committee that is currently chaired or obtain more information about the activities of the committee, contact the chairperson directly.
