Find Morel Mushrooms

Morel mushroom season is here, they are so good, and they can be found in wooded areas here at Mission Oak Inn.  The best place to find morel mushrooms is around a dead and decaying elm tree. Denny has found some growing out of the side of a steep bare bank where he had to slide down and try to grab them as he went past. That's dedication!

Henry, Illinois has been the home of the Morel Festival for a few years but not this year. We are hoping that it will be back next year.   More interesting facts can be found on this website http://thegreatmorel.com/
