Mushroom harvesting has begun in the national forest

Morel mushrooms.
Mushroom harvesting permits are on sale for commercial harvesting of mushrooms from the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Permits will be sold at local ranger stations and the forest headquarters office. Even though permits go on sale on that date, mushrooms may not start appearing until weather and soil conditions are just right.

"Morel mushrooms commonly grow in late spring and early summer in burned areas the year immediately following the fires," said Mick Mueller, Wenatchee River Ranger District environmental coordinator and amateur mycologist.  "With the snow melting off so early this year we might see mushrooms appearing earlier than normal."

Holes in trees: Hazards or harmless?
Hazardous trees pose a danger to people and property. When storms or high winds hit, limbs - and often whole trees - fall to the ground.

"Many fatal accidents and millions of dollars in property damage can be averted if homeowners heed the warning signs of a hazardous tree," explains Tchukki Andersen, BCMA, CTSP* and staff arborist for the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA). "By not paying attention to your trees, you are potentially placing your property, even your life, in jeopardy."

State Parks offers two 'free days' in April
No Discover Pass needed April 4 and April 22



The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will offer two "free days" in April. Visitors will not need to display a Discover Pass for day-use visits to state parks. The two dates are April 4, a springtime free Saturday, and Wednesday, April 22, Earth Day.

Free days are in keeping with legislation that created the Discover Pass, a $30 annual or $10 one-day permit required on recreation lands managed by Washington State Parks, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The Discover Pass legislation provided that State Parks could designate up to 12 "free days" each year when the pass would not be required to visit state parks. Discover Pass is required to access WDFW and DNR Lands on State Parks free days.
