A pink bonnet (Mycena rosella) rises out of the moss-covered rainforest along Muir Inlet in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. Its growing season is autumn and is found exclusively on coniferous needles. Mycena are important decomposers of a wide variety of plant materials.
Glacier Bay National Park is located in southeast Alaska. The park is also an important marine wilderness area known for its spectacular tidewater glaciers, icefields, and tall coastal mountains. The park, a popular destination for cruise ships, is also known for its sea kayaking and wildlife viewing opportunities.
Glacier Bay National Park is home to humpback whales, which feed in the park's protected waters during the summer, both black and grizzly bears, moose, wolves, sea otters, harbor seals, Steller sea lions, and numerous species of sea birds.
The dynamically changing park, known for its large, contiguous, intact ecosystems, is a United Nations biosphere reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
