Description

 Morel mushrooms are easily some of the most sought-after edible mushrooms in the world, only appearing in the North Texas area for 2-3 weeks each year as the weather warms up in the spring. This year, the North Texas Mycological Association is hosting our March Morel Extravaganza, spending Saturday, March 23rd visiting several locations along the Red River to look for the elusive mushroom and any other species of fungi we may find!

In addition to exploring three sites to find morel mushrooms, we will be cooking lunch to feed everyone around ~1-2 p.m. It is our goal to find some fresh morels to cook for folks, but we have some leftover dried morels from MushGiving that we will be cooking just in case we get skunked. 

During our foray, we will be concentrating on morels but will be collecting various different species and talking about their specific ecological roles, potential edibility, medicinal benefits, toxic compounds and/or practical usages. Our monthly forays are the best way for you to become familiar with the local biodiversity of fungi here in North Texas and are open to all ages and experience levels. Want a discount?

Please be sure to wear proper clothing, bring water and something to carry mushrooms with! We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to sign in and register.
