There are a few corals with that coloration in Western North America. Because you just posted the picture, and I assume you also just took the picture, it is very likely the fall coral, Ramaria formosa.

They look good enough to eat, however, it's one of the documented corals that get classified as poisonous, causing Gastrointestinal irritation.
