About the event
Join us for a walk in the woods to get to know your fungal neighbours. We will learn how to identify common mushroom species and explore the role of fungi in the ecosystem.
Mushrooms are mysterious. They capture our imagination like no other organisms. Perceived as life-giving, mind-blowing and deadly, they simultaneously inspire fear, wonder and confusion. If we slow down our pace and take our time, we'll notice that our fungal friends are all around.
Please book in advance; families are welcome, including children; please book a ticket for each human.
This walk will last approximately 3 hours and is suitable for 5+ years. Unfortunately some paths will be unsuitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Please ensure you wear appropriate outdoor clothing and sturdy shoes.
