It was a fantastic day to meet with Rachael Mahony of the PA DCNR at Linn Run State Park. Around 30 people came out to learn about mushrooms and 78 species were identified by club identifiers Jared White, John Plischke, and Richard Jacob. Special thanks to Tugrul DeLuce, Thomas Patterson, and Judy Mackenroth for ID assistance as well.

Species list entered by Jared White.
