FORAY– Good Friday Mushroom Hunt

FORAY – GOOD FRIDAY MUSHROOM HUNT

Autumn has arrived and the mushrooms are waking up!

Why is Australia so rich in different types of fungi?

How can foraging align with conservation and ensure no environmental harm?

And how do we differentiate the desirable from the deadly?

As we search for mushrooms, forayers will also learn about the vital ecological importance of fungi and the basic skills for identifying them, along with their fascinating cultural histories.

This foray includes a copy of Wild Mushrooming: A Guide for Foragers, by Alison Pouliot & Tom May (RRP $49.95, published 1 March 2021). Further copies will also be available for purchase along with Alison’s previous book, The Allure of Fungi.

Be sure to dress warmly as the foray will go ahead regardless of weather.

Please note that this event is offered as a ‘package deal’ that includes both the foray and book. If you prefer just to attend a foray or just to purchase a book, please consider one of the other events here.
