Mushroom hunting has begun in the region. Retired Central College Professor Donald Huffman author of two books on fungi, tells KNIA/KRLS News that he has been receiving reports of people finding morel mushrooms since March 20th. He says that at this point it doesn’t appear that the warm and dry winter has affected the spring mushroom season beyond the early start, like many other things this spring. Huffman notes that the growing areas for morel mushrooms can vary quite a bit, but he has had great luck finding them in areas of recently disturbed earth.
