Collecting Moss and Tree Bark - Morgantown, WV

I traveled to Monongalia County, WV today (January 15th) to collect some moss specimens to ID and photograph at home under the microscope. I made the trip today because an impending winter storm is forecast to dump up to a foot of snow throughout the entire region. While in WV, I also collected bark samples from three different tree species in hopes of culturing some slime molds.
