A Galaxy of Earthstars
– Encounters with Fungi
Earthstars might look like they come from the moon or beyond, but of course, they emerge from the forest floor.
The forests or the Creswick region are well known for their great diversity of fungi in all their myriad forms. Why are some fungi shaped like umbrellas, others like coral and others still like lattice balls or goblets?
This foray introduce participants to the strange world of the fungal kingdom. Participants will receive an introduction to the basics of identifying fungi in the field. Cultural significances such as the edibility and toxicity of fungi will also be explored.
Please note that this foray is run entirely in the field so be sure to dress warmly as we move very slowly through the forest. You might also like to bring a flask of warm tea.
