Fungitobewith is reaching out to the general public and offers an enlightening, entertaining and insightful introduction to the fascinating and increasingly important world of fungi. As well as getting to know some of the edible and toxic mushrooms,the forays also create the opportunity to compile species lists and to collect specimens as voucher material, which will be held at the Kew Gardens, mycological herbarium. This helps contribute to an ongoing documentation of numbers of species in specified areas over time and their distribution patterns across the U.K. The main aim of the forays is to gain practical experience in the identifying of different species of fungi, especially the common edible and poisonous ones. So you not only get to take home a few edibles and meet some of the nasties, you are also contributing toward a better future for fungi and the environment within which they thrive. It is essential that all those who take part respect the regulations operating in the areas where the forays are held. Please note that ‘foray’ is another term for walk.
GIFT CARDS are available too……perfect present for the nature lover in your life!
