Time to celebrate this gorgeous planet by wasting less, recycling and reusing more, and generally appreciating our home before it's too late.
As the last of the winter chill begins to dissipate and a spring warming is upon us, it's time to start planning those outdoor activities. And nothing is better to shake those cold weather cobwebs off than a morel mushroom hunt! Morels are tasty, abundant, and easy to find. Typically showing in late March through May, morels can be found along the edges of forested areas, near dead or dying trees (particularly ash, aspen, elm, and oak trees) and even in well-drained sandy soils near creek bottoms. If the temps are still cool, look for morels on open, south-facing slopes. Later in the season you will be able to spot them deeper into the woods on north-facing slopes.
