Central Illinois Mushroom Hunting

by J. E. Myers
The morel mushroom is a prized delicacy that grows in the wild in the Central United States. Sadly, while mushroom hunting still takes place in Central Illinois every spring, the increasing development of what was once prime wild mushroom territory is making mushroom hunting more difficult.
