British Mycological Society

British Mycological Society

The British Mycological Society is a registered British Charity open to all who are interested in promoting and learning about the exciting world of fungi.

It has member sections devoted to particular aspects of the fungal world including cutting edge research into many aspects of fungal science, the conservation and recording of fungi and the provision of educational resources for use at all ages and experience.

The Garden collaborates with the BMS in a range of ways.

We have the ‘From Another Kingdom’ exhibition in our Great Glasshouse, waxcap meadows on our Waun Las NNR, a developing mycological library collection and science research. We created Wales Fungus Day in 2011 which the BMS adopted as UK Fungus Day from 2012. We are enthusiastic for developing interest in and understanding of fungi.
