Spend a day getting to grips with mushrooms and toadstools – what they are, how they grow, their life-cycle, the basics of identification, how to identify some key species and groups, and which ones are edible or poisonous. The day is led by Anne Yarrow – owner of the wood for 33 years.  Coffee and introduction in the shelter, then a brief foray, followed by principles of identification. After lunch, a 1½ – 2 hour hunt in the wood (¾ – 1 mile) , then tea and identification of our finds. Bring identification book, if possible, and a basket or plastic box. Lunch available at the Wilderness cafe, or bring a packed lunch.
