Valuing the temperate rainforest: wild mushrooming on the Olympic Peninsula Biosphere Reserve

Valuing the temperate rainforest: wild mushrooming on the Olympic Peninsula Biosphere Reserve

Ambio (Special Report 9): 16-25

Part of a special report on the U.S. Man and the Biosphere Mushroom Study. Social, cultural, and economic profiles of commercial, recreational, and subsistence harvesters of chanterelle mushrooms (Cantharellus sp.) in Olympic Peninsula forests in Washington State were developed. Interviews were conducted with 79 commercial harvesters, and 53 recreational harvesters were surveyed by mail; participant observations were also made. Ethnicity and social class proved to be the most prominent social dimensions of supposed antagonistic relations between recreational and commercial harvesters, who otherwise had remarkably broad overlap in values, norms, and collective understandings. Among commercial harvesters, Latinos were taking over from Southeast Asians and Euro-Americans. Gross incomes were low, about $30 per day on average.
