Nature Walk 1

Today, Wednesday September 29th, I went on a nature walk to the Pine Tree Reserve, next to the Recreation Center at Boston College. It was a partly cloudy day, and the temperature was in the mid 60s. While I was at the reserve, I saw many different species of mushrooms, many of which looked like they were in the process of being eaten by the wildlife inhabiting the area. I saw several squirrels, one of which I was able to get multiple pictures of because it was so friendly! Although normally when I would see a squirrel off campus it would probably run away if people came too close, but this one was fairly interested in the sight of me and stayed around for longer than expected, likely because these squirrels are exposed to so many people passing through campus on a daily basis. There were also many types of wildflowers that sprouted up throughout the reserve, and lots of fauna such as ferns. The trees did not have much lichen on them which was somewhat surprising, but I was able to find some on a rock.
