I stood out in the water precariously on the old beaver dam to bring the distant trees and their reflections near to the lens in this study of minimalism.

A warm March day in Morris County means a loud Spring chorus and a busy afternoon for the local Wood Frogs.

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 –

This Tree Frog was silent and mostly motionless so it was dumb luck that I noticed it.
