Ventures in a Curious Kingdom

Exploring the fungi of Moorabool Catchment

This workshop will introduce participants to the diversity, ecology and curiosities of the Kingdom Fungi, specific to fungi found in the Moorabool region but also within a wider Australian context.

It will include an interactive and illustrated seminar on the major fungal groups, the basics of fungus identification, fungal ecology, and the natural and cultural history of fungi. Fungal specimens from the local area will be displayed, discussed and examined during the workshop. The importance of fungal conservation will also be discussed in the context of woodland and agricultural ecosystems.

Participants will also learn to recognise the various diagnostic characteristics used to identify fungi in the field.

Following the indoor session will be an exciting foray through various local habitat types to search for species of interest.

Supplementary notes will also provided.
