Fungi and mushrooms in Gryon

Porcini or death cap? Have your harvest checked by a specialist…

A wide variety of mushrooms and other fungi are to be found throughout the commune of Gryon. Its forests and fields are regularly visited by fans of certain species. In order to safeguard this wide variety, and out of respect for other mushroom hunters, we remind you of the Vaud cantonal regulations which stipulate that collection must be for personal consumption only.

Collect only species you recognise, and in case of doubt, don’t hesitate to have your harvest checked by a registered expert. For Gryon Commune, this is Mr Daniel Genova of 20 Route de Gryon in Bex. He is available, preferably of an evening, between 5 – 7 pm.

It is requested that you contact him by phone first on 024 463 13 56.
