Morel Hunting Forbidden at State Veterans Cemetery
It's tempting, I know. But please heed this warning from the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery in Preston. Morel mushroom hunting is not allowed at the cemetery. A notification from cemetery staff reads "...the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery - Preston wishes to remind everyone that hunting is NOT authorized nor allowed on any of the 169 acres of the State Cemetery. That includes but is not limited to all game hunting, mushroom, ginseng, antler sheds, etc." It goes on to state that signs are clearly posted on the cemetery grounds and anyone found violating the rule will be reported to the proper authorities.
The Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery is the final resting place for our veterans and/or dependents. They deserve our respect.
