The purpose of the Facebook group is to engage members of CVMS and active users of Facebook, along with invited mycologists and other experts on Facebook, in a discussion of amateur mycology. Tools provided by the Facebook platform such as photograph sharing, photo album uploading, video uploading, and active HTML links can be used to share and discuss news stories, recipes, experiences, personal questions and anecdotes regarding amateur mycology.

Membership in this Facebook group is through invitation or request only. Privacy settings for the group are set at a level of appearing in the Facebook search box, but the content of the group is not viewed by a non-member of the group. Participation is not mandatory by any member of CVMS.

This is the Yahoo Group page of The Connecticut Valley Mycological Society. This is not a website, it's a discussion group. CVMS has been an active community of mushroom hunters and amateur mycologists for more than 30 years. This group is designed to give CVMS members and anyone else a place to share photos, recipes, stories and mushroom-related discussions. Messages and links are available for the general public to view. All other features are for group members only.

We encourage discussion of anything to do with mushrooms and fungi except illegal fungal substances and their distribution. We do not allow adult content, flaming, advertising or other commercial posts. Use common sense and learn about wild mushrooms from southern New England's most active mushroom club.

If you would like to join CVMS an application can be downloaded from here.
CVMS is a non-profit organization of recreational mushroom hunters open to anyone with a sincere interest in collecting wild mushrooms and the study of fungi. 

Many questions about CVMS club business, foray schedule policy, rules and general practices can be answered by going to the files section and reading the "CVMS FAQ" paper.

If anyone in Connecticut believes they have been poisoned from eating wild mushrooms they should call UCONN's Poison Control Center at this emergency number: 1-800-222-1222.
For educational material about mushroom poisoning call this number at the PCC: 1-860-679-4422.

Thanks, be safe, have fun and enter the world of amateur mycology.
