Welcome! MAW is always looking for new members who want to learn more about fungi. MAW membership entitles you to:

  • Participate in guided mushroom forays with expert identifiers, including special members-only forays.
  • Participate in our annual fungi tasting dinners.
  • Receive our newsletter, Potomac Sporophore.
  • Join the North American Mycological Association at a reduced rate.

Your contribution helps support programming and club operations, including bringing in engaging speakers for our monthly meetings.

Important: Your submission of this online membership form includes your acknowledgment that you are aware that 

        • the identification of wild mushrooms always carries with it the risk that a mushroom may be misidentified, 
        • consuming a mushroom that has been incorrectly identified creates a risk of personal injury, including serious illness (up to and including an untimely death), and 
        • consumption of mushrooms and other foraged foods, even when correctly identified, carries a risk of illness, injury, or death as a result of personal sensitivity (including allergy or harmful interaction with other foods, medicines and substances). 

Your submission of this form also represents an agreement that you personally assume all risks arising from these activities and agree to release, hold harmless, and indemnify MAW and any of its officers or members from any and all legal responsibility for injuries or accidents suffered by you, your family members, or any minor child under your care during or as a result of any activity conducted under the auspices of MAW, including but not limited to use of information provided by MAW and activities involving mushroom collection, identification, or consumption.
