Morel mushrooms are famous for thriving in forests the year after a wildfire. Join us and learn how to responsibly locate and collect these edible fungi. Locating ideal burn morel terrain starts online with topographic and satellite maps. Other factors that affect your likelihood of hunting success include weather, forest type, elevation, aspect, season and terrain. We will also be sure to discuss the various Morchella species that thrive in the burn as well as proper etiquette and the best Leave No Trace practices.

You will be able to pose questions to the speaker from either platform!

About the Speaker

Trent Blizzard (Modern Forager @modforager)
Trent and Kristen Blizzard are the authors of  “Burn Morels – A Modern Forager’s Guide to Finding Mushrooms.”  They are not mycologists, but love to utilize science and mapping technology to help locate prime terrain.  They enjoy sharing their burn morel secrets because the “secret spots” change every year.  But, don’t ask him where to find naturals! Based in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, Trent and Kristen visit Oregon several times a year to hunt burn morels and also spring porcini, black trumpet, matsutake, and much more.  When they aren’t hunting the burn, look for them on the coast near Reedsport where they have some property and forage regularly.
