Gary Lincoff's Central Park Walk 6/28/09 Report
Posted by pamkray on June 29 2009 08:27
At least 40 showed up for the NYMS Central Park mushroom hunt on Sunday, June 28th. It was one of those rare days in June when it wasn't raining. We walked around the west side of the park between 95th St. and 99th. It didn't take much to find mushrooms. We even found some edibles, though not as many as last year. We found at least 40 different mushrooms.
