Buriton fungi walk

Fungi pic for 2024

An event to help identify species – starting from the village pond

Life on Earth would not exist without fungi!  Without the recycling activities of fungi, the world’s ecosystems would soon run out of nutrients. Plants would not be able to grow and our food would become depleted.

Led by HCC’s Shona Jenkins, this event is to help people identify species of fungi. In previous years a wide range of weird and wonderful ones have been found, highlighting the importance of the countryside around Buriton. 

As always, the identification of species will be left to the experts as some are protected by law whilst others are poisonous. 

The walk will be taken at a leisurely pace and no previous experience is required. 

Please wear appropriate outdoor clothing and suitable footwear for muddy and uneven paths with some uphill parts.

The event will not focus on edible fungi and we will not be collecting fungi or foraging. This event is about the natural environment and there is definitely no fry up at the end! 

It promises to be a fascinating event again.
