We will have a short introductory chat about fungi and their environment then off to beautiful forests to see what we can find. If the weather is kind to us we may find some delicious Ceps, Chanterelles and Hedgehog Fungi. We will learn about the different types of fungi in the woods and point out some of the nastier ones that are definitely not edible.
This is a lovely relaxing day in the woods learning about mushrooms in the field, in the woods, in our local environment.
