10 Hardy mushroomers hunted Deer Lakes Park in this year’s Fornof Foray. A wide variety of mushrooms were found. Although chanterelles were found, they were generally old and beyond their prime. Some of the more interesting species were Cortinarius iodes with it stunning purple color, many Hydnellum concresens (now know as Hydnellum zonatum), and two species of Leotia, i.e. the Green-headed Jelly Club and Yellow Jelly Babies.
