Annual All Western Mushroom Foray

On Sunday (9/16/2018), we enjoyed the fifth Mushroom hike on the All Western Evergreen Nursery & Christmas Tree Farm on Liberty Pole Road.  Thanks to Tony for the pictures. 

Twenty-four people enjoyed collecting mushrooms.  Even though the weather was warm and sunny, we were surprised at the number of mushrooms found. The Tree Farm has many trees that are native to the western US, so we are always on the lookout for unusual mushrooms. 

I was able to give a tour on the Utility vehicle to those that needed a ride.  Participants were issued paper bags for collections and Georgia helped identifying the found mushrooms. 

At the social afterwards we all had a wonderful spread of pot luck food.  Linda made a mushroom cake that went over extremely well.
