of the NJ Pine Barrens
There's a Fungus Among us!
Rainy weather here in the
NJ Pine Barrens has brought on an abundance of wild mushrooms and toadstools.
If you take the time to study them, they are actually quite stunning!
The photos below were taken between raindrops in the eastern Pine Barrens
|I think the above fungi
are beautiful, and am now anxious to get out and take more photos
when it's not threatening to pour! I am new to wild toadstools and
mushrooms, but enjoy eating most varieties available to purchase.
If anyone can identify any of these, please feel free to drop me
an email at Catherine AT (use @) pineypower.com!
| The Pine Barrens
is becoming a popular tourist destination. It offers history, nature, boating,
camping, fishing, swimming, and most of all, peace and tranquility. It's
important to families who live here, whether for a few years or many generations,
that our peace and tranquility be preserved.A local lawyer or doctor won't
look any different than his neighbor who works the land. Thousand dollar
suits aren't what impress people of the Pines - taking care of nature and
fellow man is what matters. To that end, it is important for you to know
that as a visitor to our precious Pine Barrens, you should show respect
for the flora and fauna, for the historical buildings or their remains,
and show respect for the "locals". Walk and drive gently. Treat
our Pine Barrens as you would want a visitor to treat your own home town
- and your own family. Thank you.
