Species list from Dark Hollow Woods on 07/15/2017

We had great weather for Dark Hollow Woods. Nine people hunted for mushrooms, including Walk Leader Cecily Franklin and Identifier Blaine Sanner. We found nearly 40 species. For a little added excitement, Cosplay (“costume play”) was having a photo shoot at DHW at the same time as our walk, so we saw numerous princesses, villains and superheroes.
