about us

This year we’re looking forward to a Very Fruitful in 2024 As we Celebrate our 13th Year

Welcome to the home site of Central Oregon Mushroom Club!  We are a group of fungi fanciers who have discovered the joy of sharing our passion for mushrooms with others. We are now a 501c3, a private non-profit in Oregon, Our meetings are open for all to attend the Trinity Episcopal Church, 469 NW Wall St in downtown Bend Oregon. We meet on the third Thursday evening (usually 6:30 PM) in the months of March-June, September and November and invite a presenters to speak on all things related to fungi and the hunt of these treasures. As a club member, you receive special invites to seasonal mushroom field trips, campouts, and potlucks.

In the fall, we create the very popular Fungi Fest. This annual attraction is held in October at the Sunriver Nature Center. as a cooperative event between COMC and the Sunriver Nature Center. 

This  website is  for members to peruse for education, videos, articles, recipes, calendar of events, field trip registration, on-line pay for membership and much more for our valuable membership.
