The period of early March to mid-April can be relatively underwhelming as far as fungal diversity is concerned, but we usually find 60+ species nonetheless. We can expect to see jelly fungi, polypores, crusts and ascomycetes.

Bring a lunch and something to drink.

If you’ve never been on a mushroom walk with us before, here’s what to expect.

Many members document their finds using the iNaturalist app – we highly recommend doing so.

It is always advisable to check the MTA Service Advisory web page before you head out.

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
