About the event

You will spend a whole day in the field searching for fungi to identify.  The day will begin with a brief introduction to the larger fungi - the various groups and their habitats.

You will learn about the key characteristics necessary for identification, such as gill attachments and spore colours.  Mycorrhizal associations (symbiotic relationships) with trees and other plant species will be discussed too.

There will also be a discussion on the edible and harmful species, but there will be no collecting other than for identification.

Led by Joyce Pitt, Botanist
