Morel mushrooms usually stand between 1 inch and 4 inches tall and are about 1 inch to 2 inches around.
They prefer dampness, so search for them a few days after a warm spring shower.
Don’t trespass. Dress appropriately. Carry a compass or GPS. Know what to look for. Pick morels correctly. Watch out for ticks.
The false morels can be poisonous and cause all kinds of health issues, including kidney and liver problems. You want to know what you’re cooking before you eat any wild mushrooms.
