Wild Rivers Mushroom Club, based in Brookings, Oregon, is a coastal based mycology group blessed with many differing types of terrain, which with our temperate climate typically affords our members a long mushroom season. Chanterelles (whites, golden, and pigs ears) morels, matsutake, boletes, black trumpets, oysters, lobsters and hedgehogs (below) are some of our more common finds.
Our membership ranges in age and experience, with a sprinkling of Northern Europeans who have found that the same wild delicacies they were used to collecting in their homelands can also be found on our coastal slopes. Mycology is a fascinating hobby, which with the right equipment, knowledge, information and the help that a group like ours can give, can turn a walk in the woods, into a delightful way to spend a few hours. Most mycologists just love to be outdoors, getting exercise and gathering a few choice specimens to take home and enhance a meal. For this epicurean delight, we have added a recipe page so that, not only our members, but anyone can enjoy the fruits of their new hobby in more interesting ways than just with a steak...
Our web site will continue to grow and have more mycology information added to it as time allows. New members are always welcome, or just come along with us into the forests around our home and see if you may like gathering on one of our regular forays.
