SOCIETY FOR THE HUNTING, RECOGNITION & OBSERVATION OF MUSHROOMS
British Columbia's Sunshine Coast, surrounded by and part of the coastal rainforest, is blessed during mushroom season with an abundance of weird, wonderful and beautiful fungi, which attract the fascinated interest of many weird, wonderful and beautiful people.
A group of these people decided to form a club so they could share this interest and learn from each other about the world of mushrooms.
And so the Sunshine Coast Society for the Hunting, Recognition and Observation of Mushrooms (SHROOM) was born.
Still in its infancy, SHROOM members are pondering how best to encourage their collective obsession with all manner of fungi. Their ideas will be elaborated upon as they develop, by way of this website.
Thanks to everyone who entered our Fungi Photo Contest. We received many wonderful submissions, and our judges had a difficult job in choosing the three winners. Click on the ribbons below to see the winning images.

The Books are Now Here!!
We finally received our shipments of books and they are now available to purchase. The society ordered 10, and they are available to members of SCSHROOM at the price of $30 each. We have sold 2 already so there are only 8 remaining. This would make a wonderful Christmas gift for your enthusiastic fungi-phile, or for yourself.
If you are interested in purchasing a copy, the society Librarian, David Piasta, has them at his home in Wilson Creek.
