Found in a grassy area of a local playground. Nearby are some large oak trees. Several different types of mushrooms/toadstools appear to be growing all within about 12 feet of each other, in a grassy area between area between a concrete path and the brick wall of the schoolhouse. The ground is moist from recent rains, but sloped gently away from the building, so it is not entirely "muddy"
I wonder about these. Are they toxic? Should school officials/parents be concerned about their presence in a play area fr small children?
