The Missouri Department of Conservation plans to launch a mushroom-hunting website later this month.

Morel mushrooms usually appear in April and May. The Missouri Department of Conservation is hosting the Wild Webcast on Mushroom Hunting on Wednesday, April 21, from 12pm to 1pm. The webcast takes a look at the edible mushrooms that grow wild in Missouri, where to find them, and how to prepare them. The information also includes how to identify and avoid the many poisonous species of Missouri mushrooms, which include the downy morel mushroom.
