Collecting rules:
Rules for collecting wild mushrooms vary
considerably by location and are changing all
the time. Here are personal use 2012 collecting rules.
If you collect on public land, double-check
with the local agency office or ranger
station to make sure these are current. If
you collect on private land, be sure to
get permission from the land owner.

Some species are restricted from collecting,
usually to help conserve them. These are mostly
rare speciesthat are uncommonly found. Scroll
down at the PSMS site to learn more.
