Morel mushrooms often fruit prolifically in the years immediately after an area has been burned by wildfire. In 2017 the Northern Region saw approximately 700,000 acres of burn, and the mushroom crop is likely to be excellent. Several thousand people are expected to come to harvest morels, including both commercial and personal-use mushroom pickers.

Mushrooms are considered a “forest product” and various levels of permits, both free and for sale, may be required to collect them. Find detailed information about mushroom harvest opportunities and regulations below.
