We had a fantastic turnout for this pop-up walk in North Park with nearly 60 attendees. The weather was just right for a nice stroll through the park.

A Globifomes graveoleus specimen was brought to the walk by Judy M. and also found during the walk on a fallen tree. It is a moderately rare species, so it was a treat to see. (Updated after publishing).
