Get Your Wild Mushrooms Identified

Please refer to our Homepage for updated information on our meetings and outings which at this time are temporarily suspended due to health reasons concerning the current virus outbreak.

PSMS offers the Hildegard Hendrickson ID Clinic for identification of your wild mushrooms in the spring and fall seasons. One or more of our identifiers will be there to tell you the name of your wild mushroom collections, and answer your mushroom-related questions.

Day: Mondays

Time: 4pm to 7pm

Venue: Glass Atrium at the Center for Urban Horticulture

The spring ID clinics usually start in mid-April (or earlier depending on the weather) and continue until the end of the spring mushroom season. The fall ID clinics usually start in late September (or when the fall rains start in the Pacific Northwest.)

At the same location and time, the Master Gardeners hold a plant identification and plant disease identification session. You may also bring plants for consultation.

You can always send us identification requests by email. For more information, see the Mushroom Identification section of Contact Info.
