WORKSHOP – Fantastic Fungi

Fantastic Fungi with Marvellous Mushrooms

This highly interactive half-day workshop with both theoretical and practical components introduces 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 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 event is sponsored by the Robertson Environment Protection Society Inc.

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