Mushroom Walk for Sunday, July 12th – Staten Island – Meet to take the 8:30 ferry

Gymnopus (Collybia) luxurians

 Results from the July 5th Central Park walk – about 25 people attended our walk through the North Woods of Central Park. We found over 100 different mushrooms! Together with the ones we found in Central Park last week, our two week total is over 130 different mushrooms…..an astounding number for a large, urban, center-city, piece of landscape architecture. Altogether, if the rains continue, we are likely to exceed 500 different mushrooms by year’s end!

NEXT SUNDAY’S WALK – Staten Island – July 12th – Meet at the Staten Island ferry terminal at the Battery to take the 8:30 ferry. Be on time or you’ll never find us in the woods…….
