Mushrooms are the fruiting parts of a fungus, looking like toadstools, shelves, brackets or balls. Fungi need moisture, so when the ground is dry they are challenging to find! About 90 percent of a fungus is hidden from view, living underground or inside trees, comprised of long threads called hyphae. Meet Interpretive Naturalist Jeanne Henderson at the Little Forks Covservancy's Riverview Preserve in search of colorful fungi.
