The West Virginia Mushroom Club was founded to promote fellowship and communication among people who are interested in mushrooms and fungi. No matter what level of interest you may have - from curious observer to expert - you are invited to particpate in all Club activities.

LODGING AND CAMPING: Please support the two hotels that helped us out last year, when a broken water main forced us to change our accomodations at the last minute. For a B&B, try the Windwood Fly-In Resort, with Ameilias Restaurant on the ground floor. It is located 3 miles SW of Canaan Valley. For a little more upscale accomodations, Call Black Bear Resort, Northside Cortland Road, Davis, WV, 304 886-4391. Black Bear is located about 1 mile NW of Canaan Valley. For lodging at Canaan Valley State Park, visit http://canaanresort.com. They have camping facilities, cabins, and a restaurant and hotel rooms at the lodge. For more info, call 800 622-4121 or 304 866-4121. For other lodging in the area, visit: http://www.tripadvisor.com/AllLocations-g1534448-c1-Hotels-Canaan_Valley_West_Virginia.html
THE SUCCESS OF THIS FORAY DEPENDS ON YOU! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can volunteer to help in any way at all. We are offering a $10 discount per person for people willing to volunteer for an hour or more. Be a part of the team that makes it all happen!
