Participants will learn some of the basic skills used to identify fungi in the field using multiple senses. The relationships between fungi and various plant species and different habitat types will be discussed. Every fungus has intriguing natural and cultural histories and stories which Alison will share along the way.
The meeting point for this field trip will be provided when you attend the Environment Seminar: Underground Lovers – Exploring the clandestine relationships between trees and fungi.
In the event of extreme weather, including a Total Fire Ban or Code Red Fire Danger Day, the seminars and field trips will not go ahead.
