Wild Edible Mushrooms of British Columbia

This guide provides a list of edible mushrooms in British Columbia, Canada including the Vancouver area, the Gulf Islands, Haida Gwaii, and the Kootenay, Yoho, Mount Revelstoke, and Glacier National Parks. Do not collect where prohibited.

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.

  1. golden chanterelle (aka chanterelle)
  2. horn of plenty (aka black chanterelle, black trumpet)
  3. jelly ear (aka wood ear)
  4. king bolete (aka cepe)
