The Mysterious Morel Mushroom

April 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Morel mushroom hunting

The Morel is one tricky fungus! There seems to be no rhyme or reason to these mushrooms. Park Volunteer, photographer and local nature enthusiast,
Gretchen Steele, has some great tips to help you find the sometimes hard to locate Morel. After a brief presentation, we will head out to the field for a small hike. While we may not find any mushrooms, participants will have a chance to learn more about what makes a good mushroom habitat. Please call 618-457-4836 to register.  Over the next couple of weeks, use your knowledge to try to gather some morels!   Interested in a guided mushroom hunt with a certified mycologist? Click here

Make a reservation for a Morel dinner, which includes the mushroom in every dish, at Tom’s Place.
