Alan Bergo: Minnesota Mushroom Regulation

Season 3

Alan Bergo joins us to spread awareness about proposed legislation in Minnesota that would functionally prohibit the foraging of mushrooms in Minnesota State Parks. We discuss the non-science backed excesses and oversights of the proposed legislation, and receive a call to action to campaign for inclusion of local Minnesota mushroom foragers and scientists in the arbitration process to create a more sensible and less ignorant policy than what has currently been drafted.
