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 16+. 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.
