Hart’s Mill land spans several different ecosystem zones which host a wide variety of creatures and plants.  Several of our avid naturalist members have been combing the property year-round to discover, photograph, and identify species from spiders and dragonflies to flowers, trees, and mushrooms.  If you have photos/species you’d like to see here, send a photo, along with the approximate date taken and the location on the land, to ritabc@gmail.com and we’ll get it added! In the meantime, check out the Plants and Creatures Gallery below.

A collection of photos taken of mushrooms found on the Harts Mill land. Where possible, the location on the land as well as when the photo was taken have been included. As with all mushroom identification tips online, the information regarding the edible (or not) nature of the following mushrooms is for your curiosity only. Please do not use these photos for safe identification of wild edible mushrooms you may find. When it comes to wild mushroom foraging, please verify any information found with at least two other sources you believe reliable.
