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.
