Romancing the Mushroom Foray
This foray through the forests of Sailors Falls takes us deep into the curious cultural histories of the Kingdom Fungi.
Why did Aboriginal Australians believe some fungi to be spirit ancestors?
How did the long association of fungi and witches arise in the depth of Germany’s Black Forest?
And just how did that fairy ring find its way onto your front lawn?
Fungi have intrigued and confounded people across cultures for centuries. This foray through various forest types takes us to meet those very fungi that have fuelled these myths and stories.
Be sure to dress warmly and prepare for wet weather.
Supplementary notes and refreshments will provided.
