Mushroom hunting

Mushroom hunting

A walk in the woods can be also become a good opportunity to gather mushrooms for a delicious and mouth-watering dinner later in the evening.
However, it is important to follow a few simple rules in order to avoid unpleasant surprises or even dangerous incidents:

  • Only pick mushrooms that you are able to identify positively. The Primiero area does not in fact have a mushroom helpdesk to help you identify what you have picked. It would be a shame to throw away all the mushrooms you have picked for fear that a few mushrooms in your basket are inedible. But it would be much worse to eat mushrooms you are not certain are edible.
  • Do not destroy mushrooms that are considered poisonous. These mushrooms are useful to the wood habitat as well!
  • Find out beforehand where mushroom gathering is permitted. Within the Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino Nature Park (whose boundaries are clearly marked on the trails entering the park), mushroom gathering is only permitted to residents, as they have rights of common on the land.
  • Gather mushrooms only during permitted times: from 7am to 7pm
  • Respect the maximum daily amount permitted: 2 kg per person over 10 years old
  • Clean mushrooms superficially where you have picked them and carry them in rigid perforated baskets
  • Purchase a mushroom picking permit (see details below)

Mushroom picking permits

The permit is personal and entitles holders to gather mushrooms in one of the three areas in which the territory has been divided: the Primiero valley (Municipalities of Fiera, Transacqua, Siror, Tonadico, Mezzano and Imer as well as the San Martino di Castrozza State Forest), the Vanoi valley (Municipality of Canal San Bovo) and Sagron Mis.
The permit can be valid for 1 day, 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks or 1 month.
You can pay the fee due for mushroom picking at the post office using a postal payment slip made out to one of the municipalities, indicating as the purpose of payment "TASSA PER LA RACCOLTA FUNGHI" (Tax for mushroom picking) and adding your personal details and the picking period.
