Mid Atlantic Wild Mushrooms

Among the more unexpected sights that residents of the Mid Atlantic region began seeing after Hurricane Irene and flooding from Tropical Storm Lee was the growth of wild mushrooms.

In woodlands and forests throughout North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and elsewhere an incredible array of fungi sprang up following heavy rainfall and flooding.

With recent weather systems bringing more rainfall, the fall of 2011 should be an exceptional time to see these beautiful mushrooms in Mid Atlantic forests. Many forms of fungi grow rapidly and die after only a few days.
