WORKSHOP – Mycology in the Mix

Mycology in the Mix – Fungus Ecology Workshop

Relative to plants and animals, the diversity and significance of fungi is little known. Yet fungi are vital in creating and stabilising soils, nourishing and interconnecting plants, recycling nutrients, retaining and filtering water, restoring environmental damage and essentially underpinning ecosystem health and resilience.

This workshop introduces participants to the diversity of the Kingdom Fungi and the basic principles of fungus identification, including fungi from the various local habitat types and those from further afield. In addition to their ecological significance, we will also discuss various cultural aspects of fungi and their use in land restoration.

Following an interactive indoor session around the specimen table, we will then head to a local field site to search for fungi of interest.

Alison’s books, The Allure of Fungi, Wild Mushrooming and Underground Lovers will be available for purchase at the workshop.

This event is kindly sponsored by Central West Lachlan Landcare.
