Not one, not Two, but THREE mushroom events were held at Blue Knob State Park (Bedford County). WPMC Mycologist John Plischke lead a walk on Chappells Field Trail before returning to the Buck Hill Amphitheater and identifying the mushrooms. The group then inoculated logs with mushroom spawn. Once the sun set John presented a mushroom slide show. For more see the pictures Kim Plischke has posted to our Facebook page.
