The fun way to find out about fungi
This year the Fungi Foray is being held on Monday 26th October at 10.30am and it will be led by Dr Tony Leech, a member of the British Mycological Society.
Tony will guide you on a two-hour walk through the diverse habitats in the park, where you can get up close and personal with a whole raft of interesting and colourful fungi.
You may also get the chance to see the russula ruberrima, a large red toadstool discovered at Kelling Heath a few years ago that had not been previously recorded in Britain and is rare in all but a few sites on the European continent.
Dr Tony Leech said: “Kelling Heath is fantastic for the Fungi Foray because of its diverse trees and heathland. These types of habitats are perfect places to find all sorts of interesting specimens and it’s a great way for people to learn more about this fascinating life form.”
On your return you can enjoy a warming bowl of soup and roll followed by a glass of mulled wine – where you can share the foray experience with your fellow fungiphiles!
