Amateur mycologist Suzanne Monnon did a fabulous job of leading our field trip on October 2. The Macnamara trail proved to be an excellent location and we were never short of specimens to observe and, with Suzanne’s help, identify.
We were all overwhelmed with the tremendous variety of species and with the beautiful shapes and colours of these organisms. We also learned that identification is really tricky and requires years of study in the lab and on the trails. Thank you Suzanne for exposing a whole new group of Macnamarans to the joys of mushrooming. Photos by Karen Runtz.
