Species list from Mingo Creek County Park on 05/19/2018

Over 15 people braved the rain to join us at Mingo this weekend. The sun came out as soon as the walk started and it turned out to be a beautiful day. We found many interesting species and even a couple (old rotting) morels! A good sized Laetiporus made an appearance and we discovered a wild honeybee hive as well!
Thanks to everyone that came out!

  1. I spoke to a women who walks dogs at Mingo and averages 10 miles a day last Thursday. She said that a group had been at Mingo on Tues and Wed and they hauled garbage bags of morels out of the park. All I found were the ones that were past prime.
