What a silly one. I’ve definitely been to Sonoma and broke that rule. I wasn’t aware of it when I did it but it wouldn’t have stopped me anyway.

Of course this would be the only entry for stillwater, aside from a car spotting of an amanita on the roadside . .

I didn’t realize this was a County Law… but isn’t it pretty much that way everywhere, when it comes to public grounds in general?

You must spread the word, Darvin: fungi are no longer part of Plantae. All fungi now belong to Mycota. Even the law can use a refresher course in biology it seems.

it’s a law in Sonoma County

Interesting,what’s the reason for the ban on picking in this location?
