Hidden Britain Tours invites you to join fungi experts from Hampshire Fungus Recording Group [HFRG] for a guided walk and introduction to mushroom hunting and identification.
On these very popular autumn walks you will explore the beautiful habitats and identify
different species of fungi that grow in the New Forest.
Our experts will enable you to identify the characteristics of the many varieties of fungi found here, what is good to eat and what is best left alone. The emphasis of these fungi forays is identification, conservation and education.
We meet at 10.00
and we finish at about 12.45
, when an option to stay on for a drink or light lunch at a nearby pub, to discuss the morning's activity.
Walks are limited to twenty people to enable good communication.
Please bring suitable clothing for the time of year, a small basket, a magnifying glass and a pocket field guide / fungi identification book if you have one and sturdy footwear.
All walks have been risk evaluated and assessed and we adhere to the New Forest Fungi Code and British Mycological Society's Code of Conduct.
