PLEASE READ THIS IF YOU HAVE DOGS OR YOUNG CHILDREN AT HOME!
Julie Hamilton worked many hours on this tri-fold brochure for dog owners to have at home. Check you yard and property for these mushrooms that come up most commonly in the spring in Central Oregon. They grow in my yard in SE Bend every year so I know that there are others. The folks in LaPine have large fruitings of Amanita aprica most springs, so do diligence and frequently check, then dispose of the mushrooms in the trash, NOT the compost!
If we can save one dog’s life or a trip to the vet, then it is all worth the effort. Every year we get calls to identify mushrooms that are poisoning animals.
