MDCP Record for 04290601
Collection Date: April 29, 2006
County or City: Milwaukee
Collector's Notes: We found the morel in our own backyard in Milwaukee County, WI. It was 53 degrees. It had rained the day before the find. Only that single specimen was found, never before or since finding morels in our yard. The morel was on a north facing slope in a patch of milkweed between a garage and a cement path. We allowed it to mature before picking, but it did not get any larger. In the summer of 2005, we had a boxelder tree removed about 25 feet away from the specimen.
