Event description
Join us on a walk of discovery and delve into the mysterious life of mushrooms

About this Event

Join our local naturalist, Dave Winnard, on one of our autumn forays to learn about the fascinating world of fungi. Come on a walk of discovery to find out how to identify mushrooms and about why life as we know it wouldn’t exist without them! Autumn is the best time to go fungi spotting and you can expect to see a startling array of shapes and colours in the woods and green spaces in the Clough.

We found 27 different species last year, including Angels Bonnet, Common Ink Cap, Velvet Shield and Crested Coral. We also found some rarer species such as, Popular Bracket and Orange Grisette.

Meet at the St Marys Road entrance, near the junction with Joyce St and next to St Marys Nursing Home.

Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear. Parts of the park may be muddy and uneven under foot.

Children must be accompanied by an adult
