Species list from Pine Ridge Park on 10/27/2018

Bit of a wet weather walk this morning but the leaf canopy always keeps some of the rain off! John Plischke III led the ten or so intrepid mushrooms hunters for a walk in a tulip popular heavy part of Pine Ridge park. A variety of species found including a number of waxy caps and a distinctive Yellow Unicorn Entoloma. A couple of us visited a local orchard on the way home to pick up fresh apple donuts, honeycrisp apple cider and a variety of apples – Yum!
