WPMC joined Chatham University at the Eden Hall campus for their Fall festival. We took a group of people into the forest to search for autumn mushrooms. On the walk from the parking lot to the meeting point we found a couple of interesting species including the Alcohol inky and some beautiful Fly Agaric specimens. Quite a variety of species were found with some larger gilled mushrooms as well a selection of Mycena and other smaller species. Due to time constraints there were quite a few species still on the table when we had to clear up and leave.
