    Event description


    Fungi are diverse and widespread. They’ve managed to colonise almost every habitat on earth. Where do we begin to get to know them and how do we differentiate one from another? 

    Join us for this evening seminar which introduces participants to a range of fungi from the local region and beyond. Taking a multisensory approach (using sight, touch and smell), we’ll work through various fungus specimens and the basic diagnostic features that are used to identify them.

    Don’t forget to bring along your mushroom specimens for identification.

    This year, we are thrilled to welcome back Alison Pouliot, an esteemed ecologist and environmental photographer whose passion and expertise lie in the fascinating world of fungi. Alison is at the forefront of fungal conservation efforts both in Australia and internationally. Her compelling writing and stunning photography are featured across a spectrum of literature, from scholarly articles to mainstream publications.
