Looking to hook up with edible mushroom foragers in or around Wewahitchka, FL. I have a fair bit of knowledge and can identify a fair amount of species with confidence. There are a few finds from my new location I needed ID'd but broke my device and don't have the pics now... Anyways I need some like minded buddies to hunt, trade, and share with! I'm mainly a green thumb but want to broaden my horizons as much as possible. I've grown some mushrooms before but not to a massive degree and want to get reacquainted after several years now too. Please someone out there let's go looking! DShroomGuy
Hi, I'm a novice. I live between DC and Baltimore, and there are not a lot of public woodlands within easy reach. The few that seem like good options are either research refuges, national parks or state parks. I have found it to be extremely difficult to find a straight answer as to what the laws about foraging for mushrooms are in the US or Maryland, and I would also like to know if the rules are different between state/national parks/forests etc.. For example, I found a NPS statement that says it is illegal to remove any plant material from any national park, but on several national park websites, particularly in the pacific northwest, but also in the Shenandoah there is actually advice about collecting mushrooms. I don't want to break laws, and I love the park system and want to support it. I emailed the research refuge but got no response. Is there already a topic on this? Does anyone have a recommendation as to where US foraging laws are clearly laid out? Or failing that, a couple suggestions as to where it is definitely legal would suffice! (other than backyards, I just ain't got one )
