Species list from Mingo Creek County Park on 09/08/2019

20 folks joined us at the busy Ebenezer Bridge at Mingo Creek County Park on Sunday, luckily the woods were quiet because only the coolest people go into the woods. We had some very enthusiastic young people which is always great!
Over 50 species were identified by Jared White, John Plischke, and Richard Jacob, among them was a rare Pluteus americanus that blued nicely after handling and a couple very fruitful Cordyceps militaris.
