NOTE: Although fungi are sorted under 'Plants' on this website's organization, fungi are not plants, but instead represent a distinct biological kingdom of their own.
Kingdom Fungi includes mushrooms, yeasts, and molds. Although fairly common, they are often overlooked due to their small size and habitats. Fungi perform important roles of decomposing organic matter and nutrient cycling. The list below contains the species of fungi that have been documented to occur in the park. This list is not exhaustive; please report your sightings to the webmaster.
