WORKSHOP – Encounters with Fungi

Encounters with Fungi – Mushroom Discovery Workshop

This 3.5 hour workshop with both theoretical and practical components will introduce participants to the diversity, ecology and curiosities of the Kingdom Fungi, specific to fungi found in region but also within a wider Australian and international context.

It includes a 90 minute session around a specimen display table where participants will learn 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.

Following the indoor session will be an exciting 90 minute foray through various local habitat types to search for species of interest. Participants will learn to recognise the various diagnostic characteristics used to identify fungi in the field and understand their ecological significance in local ecosystems.

This workshop is sponsored by the Lismore Land Protection Group.
