Do you forage for wild mushrooms? Being able to ID poisonous mushrooms is as important as it is to know your own favorite edible or medicinal mushroom. Though we’re moving out of our (not so fantastic) mushroom season here in the Southern Rockies, it’s a great time to start introducing yourself to the most toxic local shrooms so you’ll be less likely to make a mistake next season.
