Fungus discovery workshop

Join us and renowned fungi expert Alison Pouliot for a workshop to better understand and identify fungi.

Location

209 Cobra Street Dubbo

Cost

$25.00 + GST

Workshop overview

This workshop introduces participants to the diversity, ecology and curiosities of the Kingdom Fungi, specific to fungi found in the region but also within wider Australian and global contexts.

It includes an interactive session on the basics of fungus identification, where participants will get to handle, examine and identify various fungi. Participants will also learn to recognise the diagnostic characteristics used to identify fungi in the field.

Fungi will be discussed in regard to their ecological roles and also cultural aspects such as edibility and toxicity as well as the basics of how to survey fungi in the field.

Field exercise

We will then partake in an exciting foray through local ecosystems to search for species of interest.

What to bring

Participants are encouraged to bring along their own specimens for identification at the workshop.
