After 2017 wildfires made for good growing conditions for morel mushrooms, local First Nations began regulating morel picking within their territories to reduce destruction of the land. Permits were issued to those wishing to pick morel mushrooms, and sacred areas were closed. The Tsilhqot'in Nation in B.C. says the regulations have been a success. Campsites were kept clean and regulations were respected by morel pickers.
