June Mushrooms of the Month

Welcome to the June installment of Mushrooms of the Month. The warmer weather has finally moved into our region of the States and is slowly revealing a variety of beautiful species on the forest floor. With the immense amount of rain we have endured in May this year, we should be seeing some of the most unique species to Ohio in the next months. Although some species may be fruiting later this year due to a much colder May we have had in years. At the same time, I am already seeing reports of species we normally would find in July and August already. So my advice is to get out into nature; it could be the woods in your backyard, a metro park, state park, nature preserve or even an old growth forest! Just get out!
