Our accommodation is fully booked for this course but we still have non-residential spaces and can advise on local B&Bs.

An introduction to the wonderful world of mushrooms, toadstools and all things mouldy. The course is designed to enable you to identify some of our more common and more distinctive fungi and will discuss some of the weird and wonderful ecology and history of the rich and varied group. No prior experience is necessary just an enthusiasm to get out and have a go.

Chris Ford has worked in environmental education for 12 years, working at in the London Region at Juniper Hall and Bushy Park and at the Blencathra Centre in the Lake District National Park. He is now working for the RSPB on the Suffolk Coast at RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve and continuing to share his love for the natural world from wildflowers to wading birds and invertebrates to interesting fungus. When he isn't working Chris is often out on his bike or out in the garden but always with an eye out for anything interesting that might be spotted nearby.
