On a gorgeous Sunday morning, nine of us gathered at Strouds Run State Park to find some tasty edibles and new species alike. For most of us, this was another educational walk learning some new species exclusively from the area that I was not previously aware of myself and finding some delicious edibles such smooth chanterelles, tawny milkcaps, and beefsteaks! Everyone’s ambition and eagerness to find new species made it a pleasant day along with the incredible weather. Martha Bishop gave some insight to native wildflowers along with interesting facts about the local fungi since she is from the area along with being a Plant Biology Teacher at Ohio University. Here is glimpse of a few things we saw that morning and our species list for those few hours in the woods.
