Fewer mushrooms of the bolete genus were growing at Tolowa Dunes, according to a naturalist with the Tolowa Dunes Stewards. The fall was dry, making mushrooms that would normally be abundant, scarce. Lagoon levels at Earl and Tolowa lakes were less than three feet, and dune ponds and marshes were dry. Beavers and otters left the dry dune ponds for other ponds.
