May Mushrooms of the Month

Welcome to the May installment of Mushrooms of the Month. Now is the time to take advantage of the 2-3 week fruiting windows for various species of edible morels that can be found in Ohio. The only problem is—actually finding them and knowing what species are edible and which ones are not! So if you are new to morel foraging, make sure you hunt with and expert to make it well worth your day. Or come out to any of our various weekend morel forays this month as hopefully we will find some of these culinary delights for you to enjoy! Plus you will probably see quite a few other unique and interesting species along the way. Check out our events calendar today!
