Morels appear in national park

GLASGOW — Morels, or as some people call them, dryland fish, have been spotted in the forests at Mammoth Cave National Park.

“It has been warm enough for them to start popping up,” said Brad McDougal, chief park ranger. “It’s still a little early for them to be out in full mass, but I have had some reports of people finding them.”

The national park issued a press release Monday asking people to please use mesh sacks when collecting the mushrooms.

“This is an easy way to protect the future of morel mushrooms,” said Sarah Craighead, superintendent of Mammoth Cave National Park in the press release. “By using the mesh sacks to transport the collected mushrooms, spores can drop to the forest floor and continue to propagate the species.”
