Walking Stick

     We've lived in our home for 19 years and this is only the second walking stick I've seen here.  This one was ambulating across our screened-in porch a few weeks ago.  He (or she) was hard to miss at 7 or 8 inches from tip to tail.  In the right environment, he would blend right in.

     The Toledo Naturalist's Association held a field trip on September 29 to look for mushrooms north of Monclova Road and west of Girdham Road in Oak Openings Metropark.  I'd say we were pretty successful.

Amanita muscaria

Bluet (or Blewitt)




Club fungus


Honey mushroom

Lycoperdon perlatum
