HIGHAMS PARK FUNGUS FORAY 2023
Join us for a walk in the woods to get to know your fungal neighbours
Time & Location
29 Oct 2023, 11:00 – 14:00 GMT
Highams Park, London E4 9LA, UK
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 live-giving, mind-blowing and deadly, they simultaneously inspire fear, wonder and confusion. Against the odds, fungi thrive in big cities like London too. Please note that this event is for educational purposes and is not a foraging course.
Booking is essential; families are welcome, including children accompanied by an adult; please book a ticket for each human.
Travel and location
The event will take place a short walk from Highams Park overground station, E4 9LA. The meeting point will be emailed to participants prior to the event.
The event will be accessible via a hard footpath, with walking across the forest floor over uneven ground and steep terrain.
