Philadelphia area mycophile needs advice
I'm glad to have found this forum...
I've recently moved to Philadelphia, and I'm looking forward to joining Eastern Penn Mushroomers group.
In the meantime, I'd like to take some colleagues mushroom hunting, and I was hoping that you folks might have some good recommendations for areas in the general Philly region. From what I've seen on short walks and scoured online, the Wissahickon woods aren't so fruitful, so I'm hoping that there may be other, somewhat near yet wild places that I can't spot on the PA gazeteer. Perhaps Fort Washington State Park?
By the way, I'm a gentle mycophile, simply enjoying the hunt.
Also, I see that there's an "official" Eastern Penn Mushroomer hunt scheduled for Sunday, near Harrisburg; I'm afraid that may a bit too far to travel.
Many thanks for any advice you might give. Best,
