Clove Lakes Park species list 6/2/2013

Gary Lincoff's notes on the walk:
(note 1: very few polypores and crust fungi seen, compared with a typical fall walk here. Also, no jelly fungi or inky caps seen – too hot and dry most of the past week...Compared with last year’s June 2nd walk about Clove Lakes Park, we found a few more fungi last year, including a red-capped Russula, but most of the usual suspects showed up, and we did find nice specimens of our year’s first bolete, Suillus granulatus. The cicada symphony in the tree tops, and the “willingness” of those near the ground to pose endlessly for photos, made this a very special day for us.
(note 2: Tree damage from last year’s storms, Sandy and others, is conspicuous throughout the wooded parts of Clove Lakes Park – little or nothing appears to have been done here, making it difficult to follow paths through the woods.)
