Mushrooms occur around pretty much every tree.

Trees without mycorrhizal fungi are stunted and incapable of reproduction. Many, if not all, these mycorrhizae produce mushrooms at some point in their life cycle.

Also, fungi are the primary decomposers of plants on land. So anywhere that trees are growing, fungi are decomposing their dead remains.

<I>Mushrooms Demystified</I> by David Arora has a section in the front where he discusses various types of trees and the fungi that tend to be found associated with them. I would recommend that you obtain a copy of that book and look it over.

When hunting for a specific kind of mushroom, you should study the habitat it grows in, then find areas like that near you. If the mushroom you want to find grows with oak, then you need to find a stand of oak. If it likes horse dung, then you should probably seek stables.

Happy mushrooming!

IM from the north east around Delaware, so with that in mind _____
Would you say most active mushrooms around here grow on cow dung/ horse dung?

From the FAQ, these mushrooms grow in New York (so I would guess they would probably occur in Delaware):

Panaeolus subbalteatus
Psilocybe semilanceata

Look them up in the FAQ.

Happy mushrooming!
