We all know that Spring is a great time to see flowers, but that’s far from the only reason to get outdoors with your family this time of the year. Here are five other reasons Spring is a wonderful time of year for family outdoor adventures in the Pacific Northwest.
The Intimate Wonders of Spring Mushrooms
Foragers already know that spring is a great time for mushrooms. Just like in the Fall, the moist cooler temperatures help fungi thrive. Spring welcomes a few distinct kinds of fungi, most notably the much beloved morels, as well as many of the same mushrooms that are abundant in the Fall. And sometimes it's hard to remember, but soon enough we’ll be in the drier season, and even though fungi won’t completely disappear, the peak season of intimate wonders will have passed.
