A FRIENDLY REMINDER TO ALL
RULES FOR COLLECTING MUSHROOMS ON STATE AND FEDERAL LAND:
It is against the law to collect in State Forests and National Parks. Collecting in National Forests for personal use (small amounts) is permitted. Large amounts require purchasing a permit. For personal collecting, there is no charge, and no permit is required EXCEPT in the White River National Forest (the other side of Loveland Pass). Get the pass in the District offices – Silverthorne for the Dillon Ranger District (Summit County) and Minturn for the Holy Cross Ranger District (the other side of Vail Pass). The permit says you can collect up to 5 pounds a day and up to 67 pounds a year. The Dillon enforcement officer said the penalty for being caught without a permit is $230.
