January Mushrooms of the Month

Welcome to the January installment of Mushrooms of the Month. The New Year is here and with the random warm spells we have been experiencing, you never know what might pop up through the soft layers of snow covered logs and soil. A variety of late fall species can even produce a delayed fruiting if the temperatures are just right and the moisture is perfect. Mushrooms are as we already know quite elusive, and the snow certainly does not help matters. But when the temperature breaks, it might be a good time to get out and explore! Just make sure to bundle up in layers, gloves, hat, scarf, drink & bring lots of warm liquids, and even a nice pair of ice cleats might be necessary depending on where you are going. And yeah don’t forget your camera!
