Welcome to The Susquehanna Valley Mycological Society
"The Apple is the fruit of the apple tree, Mushrooms are the fruit of the mycelium, and Spores are the fruit of mold!"
-Richard F. Progovitz
The Susquehanna Valley Mycological Society (S.V.M.S.) is a
non-profit organization and was founded in 1992 by ten people
in the south central New York State region who had a common interest in mushrooms. Over a decade
later, our club is thriving and our membership fluctuates between seventy and
ninety members each year.
A Wealth of Knowledge
Most of our activities are in Broome and Tioga counties in New York, and Susquehanna county in Pennsylvania. S.V.M.S. is charter member of North America Mycological Association (N.A.M.A.) and Northeast Mycological Federation (N.E.M.F.). Both of these organizations are comprised of almost all of the Mycologists in the Western Hemisphere. We have a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips. You could have that also.
Look, Learn and Laugh

Join our club and walk the mycologically rich forests of New York and Pennsylvania with us. We have three to four annual forays from the spring through the fall each year. These forays offer you a chance to learn more about the local varieties of fungi and enjoy the company of fellow mushroom minded people.
Feel Right at HomeOur membership spans all knowledge levels, from the novice to the seasoned expert. You will not feel out of place, whatever your level of experience. Our members also come from a wide range of backgrounds. You will find that you have much in common with quite a few S.V.M.S. folks.
