Big Woods Trail Photo

WOODVILLE – Alan Rockefeller, a mycologist (fungi biologist), who lives in Oakland, California, submitted the winning Big Woods Nature Trail Photo-of-the-Month for the month of November. 

The Tyler County Art League judge found the photo interesting and unique and commented on the amazing light. Rockefeller has traveled to various countries to collect and study mushrooms.  He has identified several species not described in the scientific literature. 

The strobilurus onigenoides mushroom pictured in the photo grows on magnolia seed pods.   

 All guests walking the Big Woods Nature Trail at Heritage Village are encouraged to read the contest procedures posted on the kiosk and submit photos.
