Fungi of many types can be found in every woodlot throughout Ohio.
They get overlooked, ignored and/or avoided by visitors to the woods
because people don’t know what they are, have limited knowledge, or
have been misinformed as to their importance or dangers. Fungi are
quite intriguing once one gets to know them, their life histories, their

the woods of learning what these fascinating organisms are and the
beauty they possess.
