The Magic of Mushrooms

Steve England

The Vench - Adventure Playground and Community Centre, Romney Avenue, Lockleaze, BS7 9TB

More Info

A great opportunity to find out about the magical and fascinating world of mushrooms.

Steve England’s walk will look at the identification and habitats of species found along the way, how they work and why they make a woodland healthy, along with some vital environmental factors and considerations that both new and seasoned mushroom enthusiasts need to know. Steve will aim to identify a selection of species for making ink and fire lighting, learn the edible and toxic species, and maybe even find a tasty fungi treat together in the woods.

You will also learn some of the bizarre and unusual behaviours of fungi, and learn what makes fungi some of the most fascinating, beautiful and strange organisms to occupy our natural world.

Suitable for ages 16+. Approximately a 2 mile walk on uneven ground. Meet at the Vench Adventure Playground, Romney Avenue, Lockleaze. £38.32.

Please note that this is not specifically a mushroom foraging course and that is it will not be solely focused only on edible mushrooms.
