WINTER FUNGUS FORAY
Join us for a walk in the woods to get to know your fungal neighbours
Time & Location
29 Jan 2023, 10:45 – 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. Winter is the ideal time to spot wood-decaying fungi, including species like the Turkey Tail, Jelly Brain and Black Witches Butter! We will learn how to identify common cold-season mushroom species and explore the role of fungi in the ecosystem and human culture.
Join us from 10.45am for free mushroom tea (bring your own cup!), with the foray starting at 11am.
Families are most welcome, including children accompanied by an adult. Please note that this event is for educational purposes and is not a foraging course.
Booking is essential; families are welcome, including children; please book a ticket for each human (dogs free of charge).
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 meeting point will be accessible via a hard footpath, with the walk taking place over uneven ground and steep terrain, which may not be suitable for buggies or wheelchairs at this time of year. It is likely to be muddy, so wear appropriate footwear!
