A Fungus Among Us

Keep your eyes out the next time you cruise along the Neuse River.  Whether you kayak or canoe down the river or walk along the Neuse River Greenway Trail, if you’ll slow down and look at the trees and rocks you might find some of these cool mushrooms. Grab your Field Guide to Common Macrofungi in Eastern Forests and Their Ecosystem Functions and figure out what they are. Just be careful and don’t go when you are hungry as I briefly skimmed it and noticed that most are labeled as, “Inedible.”
