Wild Edible Mushrooms of Alberta
This guide provides a list of edible mushrooms in Alberta, Canada including the Edmonton and Calgary areas and the Jasper, Banff, Waterton Lakes, Elk Island and Waterton Buffalo National Parks.
This list only contains "safe" mushrooms - those that can be reliably identified and have no deadly-poisonous lookalikes. As a safety precaution, all mushrooms should be cooked and eaten in small quantities if not previously consumed.
Warning: do not attempt to identify a mushroom by matching the pictures alone; compare all the listed characteristics. Never experiment with a mushroom that you cannot positively identify. A poisonous mushroom can kill you.
