Morels are popping up!
Ozark Countians have begun the annual search for morel mushrooms. Four species of morel mushrooms growing in the Ozarks vary in color from yellow to tan to gray. Be careful! A similar-looking but sometimes toxic species of mushroom, known as “false morels” or red morels, is also found in the Ozarks. Have you found morels this spring?
