EXCLUSIVE
Under Our Feet

We see them on our walks and commutes, growing under bushes, popping out of mulch or clinging to oak trees. Some species are more commonly found in shaded, damp woods while others will grow in rotting hay bales or near areas rich with cow manure. From the gorgeous whites of a lions mane to short stemmed bolets freckled orange and yellow to some out-of-this-world feather patterns on a peasant polypore, mushrooms thrive all around us but few understand how many are native to Rhode Island and more importantly for some, which are edible.
