It is my understanding that removal of any items from state park is a misdemeanor.
Removal of items from all state property is a misdemeanor whether in park not.
Be careful where and when you collect.

Only thing you can legally remove from state parks, that I am aware of, are ticks. There's something about being able to eat berries and such - picking is okay or something - but I can't remember. So, I wouldn't even pick those.

I found a really nice piece in Lake Superior last year.

I've picked up a few good pieces at garage sales, cheap. Don't know if they came by it legally, but I think it's safe at that point! Also typically been out of the water for years and so is very unlikely to harbor any unpleasant creatures as fresh driftwood definitely can.

I have a couple of pieces. If interested PM me with e-mail address. $10 for both.
