NATURE report

Food and Fung, a report by LLCC Naturalist Julia Kuhns

 

Wild raspberries are still in abundance and blueberries are ripe in the bog. Gooseberries are ripening (all berries eaten by photographer for purely scientific reasons). Maybe the first signs of chicken of the woods re-appearing and large patches of False Chanterelles were spotted on campus. We also found clumps of ghost pipes. In other news, the Loon was teaching its baby to dive in the shallows. The chick is now spending more time away from mom and dad and growing more independent. They grow up so fast. The Milkweed is just starting to form its pods and the Monarch caterpillars have formed chrysalises in the butterfly house.
