POWWW’s 2019 Guided Mushroom Walk
Powww’s first Mushroom walk was a great success! With 50 enthusiastic participants we covered a lot information at a show and tell table cover in a variety of fungi from at least 25 different species.
After the table discussion most of the group trekked off on the teal trail from the parking lot to do some foraging of their own were we found many more fungi to marvel at. Some we positively identified
And some were left as unknown or know only to general group.
Our next event will be the Hawk Watch Hike on September 21st. RSVP here – https://www.facebook.com/events/2455768184491915/

Leaderless Walk at Allamuchy Mountain
Leaderless Walk at Allamuchy Mountain State Park
Leaderless Walks are small organized groups compromised mostly of butterfly, dragonfly, bird, and botany enthusiasts. The walks are free, informative, and informal. Most will take place on weekdays. If you’d like me to put you in touch with the organizers let me know.
The highlights for me on this trip were getting close-up shots of the Black Racer and also getting the shot of two very young Five-lined Skinks in one frame.

Taken recently, through living room window. It only took about 3 days of having a new filled feeder out for a local Hummingbird to start visiting us. I put a feeder up in both the frontyard and the backyard and intentionally placed the feeders in habitat that includes both sunlight and a little bit of tree cover. My plan seemed to be to the birds’ liking so far.
