Porch Talk—Morel Hunting 101

Curious about morel hunting? These little morsels are easy to identify, widespread and give us a great reason to get out of the house and on to our public lands in the spring. With last year’s Pioneer Fire in Boise County, the morel season is expected to be big.

Join us for an informal discussion on mushroom-picking ecology, etiquette and edibility with ICL’s experienced morel hunter, Jonathan Oppenheimer. Learn about foraging and cleaning techniques, how to locate spots where morels and other edible mushrooms can be found, and how to cook these delicious mushrooms. All attendees will be sworn to secrecy.
