A Mushroom Walk

On November 20, 2015, we learned about mushrooms with the Natural History Society. We joined mushroom enthusiast Caroline Robertson and naturalist Ken Wilson for an introduction to local mushrooms.

We looked at the features that distinguish one mushroom from another and tried our hand at identifying some of the common species we found. We learned some ecological roles and astonishing facts. We dressed for the weather and uneven terrain.

The number of participants was limited. Janell at JLTnatural@saveland.org was the contact for information.


Birding the Dungeness

347On August 26, 2015, naturalist and birder extraordinaire Ken Wilson led our trip to Dungeness, an area with a rich diversity of birds, some of which are scarce in the Port Townsend area.

This is a time of fall migration for numerous species of shorebirds. Recommended were clothing layers to accommodate our unpredictable weather, lunch, beverage, binoculars, and perhaps a bird field guide.
