Fungus Forays

All my surveys are sent as records to British Mycological Society and Fungus Conservation Trust to form important National records for the County.


Mushrooms, toadstools and FUNGI!

Having worked developing countryside skills for over 30 years my knowledge in the field of the many different types is still growing.

As a field mycologist I am able to identify many types as we walk, providing details of the key features and preferred habitat.

A chance to understand what they are, where they grow, more about poisonous and edible. Love fungi.

Fungus Forays

A 2-3 hour walk in a habitat or series of habitats where we look for different types of mushrooms and toadstools.

You will find them, including the rare ones, and I will name them. A chance to handle specimens and to realise the complexity of their function.

A scientific list of finds will be produced and shared with the landowner and national recording schemes to improve our knowledge of sites and fungi. Any number taken.
