Found on the side of a trail in a transition area between a mostly dense Doug fir/oak woodland and more sparse oak woodland. The fungus was found on a stump and was about 3 inches long. It hadn't rained in the area (California drought) for a while so the fungus was dry.
The Pepperwood Vital Signs Project gives visitors an opportunity to share their natural history observations with the preserve's community while contributing to growing citizen-science datasets on the distribution of the plants and animals of the preserve. We hope you'll add your observations each time you visit us!
