Spring is for Mushroom Hunting
Utah Public Radio Tuesday, May. 16, 2017
May to October is mushroom hunting season in the Rocky Mountains. If names like pig's ear, puff balls, and fairy ring mushrooms don’t excite you, remember edible mushrooms are quite valuable, not to mention delicious. Last Saturday, Stokes Nature Center lead a trip up Logan Canyon with Michael Piep, an expert mycologist from the Utah State University Herbarium. Everyone took home their finds in a paper bag, the best vessel to transport delicate mushrooms.
