A great opportunity to find out about the magical and fascinating world of mushrooms.

This is a great opportunity to find out about the magical and fascinating world of mushrooms.

We will look at the identification and habitats of species we find along the way, how they work and why they make a woodland healthy, along with some vital environmental factors and considerations that both new and seasoned mushroom enthusiasts need to know. We will aim to identify a selection of species for making ink and fire lighting, learn the edible and toxic species, and maybe even find a tasty fungi treat together in the woods.

We will also learn some of the bizarre and unusual behaviours of fungi, and learn what makes fungi some of the most fascinating, beautiful and strange organisms to occupy our natural world.

Suitable for ages 14+. Approximately a 2 mile walk on uneven ground. We will be meeting at the Vench Adventure Playground, Romney Avenue, Lockleaze.

Please note this is not specifically a mushroom foraging course i.e. we will not be solely focused only on edible mushrooms.

What to Bring?

Notepad, pen and camera, snacks and refreshments for on the day. Dress accordingly to the weather and wear sturdy footwear.

Cancellation/Postponing due to Poor Weather

SE Outdoor Learning events take place outdoors, and therefore unfortunately we may need to be postponed or cancelled in the days leading up to the event if it seems that the weather will be too poor for it to be run safely. We will always aim to confirm cancellation of the event 24 – 48 hours in advance (though on very rare occassions, sudden weather changes may mean its closer than this). Please keep an eye on your emails and Facebook for information regarding this. If you cannot make the postponed date, please request a refund and we will be able to issue this for you asap.
