Annual search for fungi in the Park with Anne Andrews. Meet at the Blackheath Gate.

Even in very dry conditions Anne Andrews finds much of interest to arouse our curiosity. Conditions this year will depend on the level of rainfall. This walk will awaken an interest in the subject and sharpen your observational skills. The Wildlife Centre has many books if you wish to consult.

This event is subject to weather conditions so please confirm that the event will take place by either looking on the website or the Friends notice board in the Park, the day before.
