Fantastic fungi fun at Queenswood Country Park

Do you know your Common Puffball from your Turkey Tail?  Come along to Queenswood Country Park to find out more!

The Herefordshire Fungus Survey Group will be celebrating the UKs first ever Fungus Day with a range of fungus themed fun for all the family.  The event takes place on Saturday 12 October from 10:00am to 3:30pm and everyone is invited to come along and be inspired by the fascinating world of fungi.

There will be fungi talks, displays, walks, games and competitions and if you have a specimen you wish to be identified, there’ll be experts on hand to help you out.   

In the afternoon, the council’s countryside ranger Hannah Dalton, will be creating a forest of clay fungus friends and foes in the fairy ring and everyone is welcome to join in.

Dr Roger Evans from the Herefordshire Fungus Survey Group, said: “Although they are often forgotten, fungi are massively important to us all, as they enable the existence of life on Earth.  Come along and help put Herefordshire on the map with our Fungus Day celebrations!”
