Spring is the perfect time to find an abundance of fungi because of the cooler temperatures and frequency of damp days. And now that A Fungus Among Us has been re-released with an additional 20 pages of ideas and notebooking reproducibles, it’s the perfect time for studying fungi!
Unfortunately, the mycelium of any fungi found on a tree grow into the tree and compromise the its health. You can assume the tree is not in perfect health when you find a fungus on it.
You’ll notice that I’m not a fungus identification expert! I’ve scoured my National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms and given my best educated guesses.
I’d love for you to blog about your fungi finds and add the link to your post in the comment section!
