Sunshine, Honey Mushrooms, and Homemade Soup
Sunday, October 10th--Mushroom hunters from as far as Mount Pleasant, Ann Arbor, Cadillac and Traverse City combed the woods of Antrim County together on Sunday, collecting over 22 species of fungal finds. Among these were the choice edibles: king bolete, chanterelle, aborted entoloma, and honey mushrooms.

ISLAND, Grass River Natural Area and the Michigan Mushroom Hunters Club partnered to hold this month's Northwestern Michigan Mushroom Foray. Guests from MMHC included their President, Phil Tedeschi, and Secretary Sister Marie Kopin, who shared their expert identification skills with
us all. Phil, an avid cook, prepared a delicious wild mushroom potato leek soup featuring hen of the woods and oyster mushrooms. Yum! Thank you Phil, Sister Marie, and MMHC for joining ISLAND and GRNA for one of our monthly mushroom forays.
