Hi FOSCers,

Remember that great talk by Damon Tighe at our March meeting?

Damon reminds us that mushroom season is kicking off in Dimond Park and 
running up Dimond Canyon! This morning he saw lion's mane (/Hericium 
erinaceus/) and oyster mushrooms (/Pleurotus ostreatus/) on some of the 
downed oaks along the Dimond Canyon Trail. You can put your mushroom 
training to work and learn firsthand about the seasonal denizens of the 
watershed. See Damon's photos from this morning here:

Damon notes that iNaturalist has about three people that identify 
mushrooms on a daily basis in the East Bay, so observations going up 
will get help in a relatively quick manner. Also iNaturalist now has an 
automatic identity suggestion tool that can give suggestions in the 
field, and it's pretty good on the common mushrooms of the Bay Area.

Add your observations today:

Go fungi!
