This is an introductory course on fungi exploring different places to find them in the grounds of Margam Country Park in south Wales. We will identify them initially to families and take some to species and use the names to find out more about their way of life and natural history. We are not intending to eat them. Come and enjoy a weekend with fungi and the environment of Margam Park.
