Membership in the Sonoma County Mycological Association (SOMA) is a great way to meet and interact with other mushroom enthusiasts, learn more about identifying fungi, and share interests such as cooking and cultivating mushrooms. Sure, most of what SOMA does is open to the public, but wouldn't you rather join SOMA and get all the goodies?

Two easy ways to apply (or renew)

We now offer the ability to apply and pay your dues directly online (via PayPal). Prefer to fill out a traditional paper form and send in a check? No problem—you can do that too!

What do I get?

All kinds of stuff!

Lifetime Membership

Yes, you can now become a lifetime member of SOMA and avoid all the pesky details of annual subscription. For a mere $250, you can opt to never pay membership dues again! Your membership will include all the above benefits of membership including subscription to the great digital version of SOMA News. Lifetime membership elevates you to the level of SOMA Patron where you may experience visions as you might from one of those mushrooms.

How much does it cost?

Please note: Memberships are good for 12 months, and now run from Sept 1 to Aug 31.

Okay, I'm convinced! How do I join (or renew)?
