Yes, I could pick these…

I collected two collections for herbarium specimens. And Alissa did collect some for dye. However she is really careful at collecting Hydnellum and Phellodon, choosing to carefully extract them from the ground to minimally disturb the mycelium mat.

Considering how many thousands of fruit-bodies were there, and the fact that she only took a few mature specimens from each patch, I doubt she did much damage.

Picking is allowed at Honeyman SP; it’s a five gallon per-day limit. I think it’s only one gal. per person on the dunes?

The sandy soil is just like Cape Cod, where I barely made a dent on the Dermocybe growing there; most of which were growing on a friend’s property. Even though I haven’t been there since 2010, she has told me that there has been more fruiting the past few years, then before I picked that area.

at least you could pick these …

unlike at “no-pick” Honeyman, and no doubt did. Good dye shrooms, in an apparently very good year for mushrooms in general in S. OR.

Leave some for the rest of us though, eh? Including the ecosystem.

Guess that we’re just lucky that those sandy soils precluded bringing in your wheelbarrow! (see the Siegel Cape Cod Red Dermocybe haul for an excellent example of over-the-top harvesting).
