MOREL HUNTING: They can be harder to find than an Easter egg, but morel mushrooms are worth the time and effort to find. They seem to pop up overnight in late spring. Morels can be found in moist woods, river bottoms and on south-facing slopes. Try searching near dead elm trees, in old orchards or burned areas. Remember to properly identify morels, like any wild edible, before consuming. Learn about morel mushrooms, what makes mushrooms edible, and watch a recipe for morel polenta in this week's Discover Nature Note.
