IDNR Mushroom Information

Springtime means mushroom hunting around the local area.  The Illinois Department of Natural Resources wants mushroom hunters to be aware of certain rules, while they are out searching.  No license is required for mushroom collecting in Illinois, although collectors always need landowner permission and, on public sites, must adhere to approved collecting regulations and hours.  Collection of mushrooms is allowed in many state parks and recreation areas, but it is not allowed in any area designated as a dedicated nature preserve.  Mushroom collectors and other visitors to Illinois state parks, fish and wildlife areas, and other IDNR-managed sites, which have spring turkey hunting programs in April and May, are reminded that hunting areas are closed to activities other than turkey hunting from one-half hour before sunrise until 1 PM daily during the spring turkey season.  Mushroom hunters are urged to call ahead to the state site they intend to visit to learn of any site-specific regulations regarding mushroom collecting.
