WORSHOP – Mushrooms at Mulligans

Mushrooms at Mulligans – Fungus Discovery Workshop

What are all those fungi doing there in the landscape?

How do they help ecosystems function?

And how do the mammals of Mulligans interact with mushrooms?

This workshop introduces participants to the diversity, ecology and curiosities of the Kingdom Fungi, specific to

fungi found at Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary, but also within wider Australian and global contexts.

This workshop includes an interactive session on the basics of fungus identification, where you will get to handle, examine and identify various fungi. You will also learn to recognise the various diagnostic

features used to identify fungi in the field. Fungi will be discussed in regard to their ecological roles and

also cultural aspects such as edibility and toxicity and the importance of fungi in biodiversity conservation.

We will then partake in an exciting foray through the sanctuary to search for species of interest.

Tea and coffee are provided, but bring your lunch and be sure to dress warmly.
