I live in on the coast in Humboldt County, Ca. I'm well aware that there are active mushrooms within our redwood forest, but since I'm new to this I'll go ahead and ask a dumbass question. What types of active mushrooms can I find in this area? What do they look like? This is the coastal northern california region(for all that aren't familiar w/ Humboldt county) and it would be sick if somebody can put me on the path to rightousness.
and although not a "magic" mushroom, but still quite intoxicating and entheogenic
amanita muscaria - the mario mushrooms
everyone else is just going to tell you to do some research!!! go to the mushroom hunting section of the main site, and look for mapping the mycelial network, it will tell you which psilocybin mushrooms can be found in which states.
just out in the blue for ya, the dealer mushrooms, psilocybe cubensis, which are known for growing on cow shit, dont grow here!!!!
and if your near the redwoods and like edibles for their culinary value, research agaricus augustus which is quite common this time of year under redwoods!!!
take care, many good vibes, and welcome to the world of mushroom hunting my friend!!!

6. No asking WHEN or WHERE mushrooms, or a specific mushroom species will grow. This includes, asking what habitat a mushroom[s] can be found- or their preferred fruiting conditions. This can be very simply answered by using the "search posts" feature: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/search.php Asking if "now is a good time to look for mushrooms". Or how long to wait after rain fall to go hunting. Each mushroom species has a different rate of growth- some mushrooms, like Ganoderma species, take quite a while to mature, compared to mushrooms like Conocybe, which take only one night to show up, and mature, and are all shriveled by the end of the next day. Conversely, Ganoderma persist for months, only disappearing when the bark beetle infestation has done enough damage, that the fruiting body falls to the ground, and slowly gets eaten away, and any remainder, crumbles into the top soil. These issues are sort of redundant, as addressed in rules #4 and #5, yet needed to be explained more concisely, due to many people seeing these questions as loop-holes since they were not directly described.
