Meet at 9am at Discovery Park Visitor Center, 3801 W. Government Way, Seattle.

Bring close-up gear and dress to crawl on the ground (maybe bring some plastic to lay on). A bag of beans or rice makes a good camera stabilizer if you don't have a tripod that can get low to the ground. Bring a soft brush to clean dirt from your mushrooms for a better photograph.
