Do you know a deathcap from an earthstar? Experienced tutor Dr Lee Heyward of Cotswold Fungus Group will be your guide to the fascinating world of fungi.

Friendly and informative, the course covers fungal ecology, identifying and recording this bizarre kingdom. Course pack and refreshments included. 09:30 – 16.00.

Course expectations

By the end of the course you will have covered key aspects of fungi identification and ecology; use of characteristics, guides and keys to identify your finds; how to record and share your sightings and how to get involved in fungi forays locally. Please note that while we may find edible fungi, accurately identifying fungi to eat is outside the scope of this course.
