Foray report from forest preserve near Willow Springs.

On this warm summery day fifteen mushroom hunters walked through this oak woods in search of fungi. Much of the woods was on the dry side and the mushrooom season was in transition from spring to summer. Interesting findings included a dog stinkhorn, the oak-loving collybia, and the oak milkcap. We found 28 kinds of fungi (6 were old from last year). Thanks to Rocky for leading the foray.
