It’s about the end of the 2014 mushroom season.
We will not be meeting weekly at Websters Bookkstore in State College PA for mushroom identification until next spring when the Morel madness begins again.
In the meantime, look for Velvet Stems and Oyster mushrooms during the winter thaws.
I will be expanding this website over the winter and adding some very useful information.
Have a great holiday season.
