Bohemia Ecological Preserve

Brown's Artist's Conk frequently grows on dead or dying Bay Laurel. It begins life as a whitish knob of pores and can grow to weigh over 25 pounds. The white pores on the bottom have released billions of brown spores daily. Artists use them as palettes because the pores stain brown, perfect for etching. This old Conk is on a stump a little south of the bridge over Duvoul Creek.
