Walk leaders Jack and Valery Baker.
Big turn out for this chanterelle hunt. I counted 5 species of chanterelle but people were mainly picking smooth chanterelles, black trumpets and cinnabar-red chanterelles. Over 50 species of mushrooms identified and many more left on the table before we called it a day.

Having flicked through Gary Lincoff’s “Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms” for quite a few years I always wonder how you find lots of these species. The answer is of course wait for a wet year and you will be stumbling across many colorful mushrooms like the Clavaria zollingeri and Cortinarius violaceus while picking bountiful chanterelles.
