Alaska Mushrooms


Recommended Posts


New to this site and mushrooms in general- except the abundant Chaga mushrooms here.

Was wondering where I could go online to find out what types of mushrooms grow in Alaska- specifically the Kenai peninsula where I live. Looking for mushrooms with medicinal properties like Chaga,  Agarikon, Lion's Mane and Turkey Tail have. Any referrals appreciated.

Looks like there are several guides available.

Judy Hall Jacobson has written several: 

Common Mushrooms of Alaska

Mushrooms and other Fungi of Alaska 

Edible Mushrooms of Alaska

Other guides include:

Alaska’s Mushrooms,a Wide Ranging Guide, by Gary A. Laursen and Neil McArthur

The Alaskan Mushroom Hunter’s Guide, by Ben Guild

i don’t know what’s online, but I’d check out these guides and buy the best of them
