Fungus Finds

Hunting season is here- deer, grouse, elk and mushrooms. It is a great season to be in the woods, and there is no better reason than to bring home something good to eat.

Mycology is the proper name for the study of fungi. It is a field important to mushroom hunters, for making a mistake in identification is potentially fatal. We have begun our schooling, fortunately there is a good Mycological Society locally.

Field work begins today in the fir forests known to be a favored environment for chantrelles.
