A very wet and rainy day at Chatham University’s Eden Hall Campus. Eight of us meet at the main campus parking lot before walking down a trail into the woods. We found a wide range of species and with the recent rain we’re starting to see gilled mushrooms again.

Despite mainly staying on the trail some members managed to pick up a lot of ticks which was quite unusual. This may be due to the time of year and the weather or it could be particular to the location and the number of deer on campus. Either way no fun for anyone.
