Discover Fungi - a chance to get to grips with the forgotten kingdom

An introduction to fungi for beginners and the less experienced. The six week course will concentrate on mushroom and toadstools and will touch on the other types of larger fungi – such as the jelly fungi, puffballs, clubs, hedgehog fungi, brackets and some of the larger cup fungi.

There will be a lecture followed by a more informal hand-on session when specimens brought in by the students will be identified and discussed.

Students are advised to bring a x10 hand lens.
