Fungus Among Us: Mushrooms of Ohio – West Woods Nature Center – October 1, 2023

Ohio is home to more than two thousand kinds of mushrooms, which exhibit a broad variety of shape, size, color, and habitat, as shown in the photos above. All mushrooms are fungi, which play a critical role in nature and an equally important role in the lives of people everywhere. Geauga County Parks is hosting my slide presentation, Fungus Among Us – Mushrooms of Ohio on Saturday, October 1, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the West Woods Nature Center. This is a live program in which I will share several dozen color photographs of Ohio mushrooms taken throughout the Buckeye State over the past four decades, as well as guidelines and resources for finding and identifying some of Ohio’s most beautiful, interesting, and tasty (!) wild mushrooms. I will also have available copies of my books, A Photographer’s Guide to Ohio – Volumes 1 and 2, and Ohio in Photographs: A Portrait of the Buckeye State

West Woods Nature Center is located at: 9465 Kinsman Rd, Novelty, OH 44072. Phone: (440) 286-9516
