Can I harvest wild moss from the forest?

Asked June 4, 2014, 2:34 AM EDT

I want to make some kokedura (Japanese moss balls) and I just need a little bit of sheet moss. Can I just go to the nearest BLM land and get some? Or do I need permits?

Sorry, but you will need an a permit. However, removing such a small amount of material, there won't likely be a big problem to get a permit. Just search on the state BLM website and see where your nearest office is.
