Morels are an early spring mushroom considered to be a delicacy by many mushroom enthusiasts. On this guided hike, we’ll head into the woods to hunt for – but not harvest – morels. We’ll learn how to identify morels and distinguish them from other fungi. The morel’s habitat requirements and role in ecology will also be discussed. Disclaimer: This program is NOT intended to be a collection foray and we will not be gathering morels or any other fungi. Please call 630-444-3190 or e-mail to register.
