In the last 24 hours the Omaha-metro area has recorded at least an inch of rain in most locations and more precipitation is continuing to fall! As I glance around our Omaha Office location of Game and Parks, it appears that the grass started greening up almost overnight!
I can’t help but think how good all of this moisture is for …. you got it — the morel mushroom!
It may turn out to be a good more mushroom hunting/picking season after all! Katie Stacey an avid morel mushroom hunter here at the Omaha Office of Game and Parks says we still need some more moisture and for ground temps to warm up. Katie thinks that we may see morels pop up in river bottom woodlands in a couple weeks.
I can literally smell those morels cooking in the frying pan with a little butter right now!!! MMMmmm … KATIE, GO CHECK YOUR WOODS AGAIN FOR MORELS, PLEASE!!!
