The Sonoma County Mycological Association (SOMA) is a non-profit group dedicated to learning about local mushrooms, and educating the public about the vast and diverse world of fungi.
We sponsor a variety of mushroom-related activities and services open to the general public, including free emergency mushroom identification for concerned citizens of Sonoma County.
Once you learn to identify and know these delightful creatures, recreational collecting can become a lifelong and healthy hobby. The fun starts with a tiny spore!
