FORAY – A Foray Among the Funguses of Ard Choille Heritage Garden
The gracious 19th century garden of Ard Choille showcasing its spectacular autumn colours and taking full advantage of the unique cool climate with a huge array of exotic trees and shrubs, is also home to a great diversity of fungi.
This foray takes us deep into the curiosities of the fungal realm, exploring the clandestine relationships between fungi and plants. Following a delicious morning tea, we will explore the diversity of the kingdom and its natural and cultural history through a selection of collected fungi.
Participants will learn how to identify fungi and of their significance to ecosystem health. Fungal specimens from the local area will be discussed, examined and handled during this session.
After a light luncheon with a glass of local sparkling, we partake in a foray through the myriad habitats of Ard Choille Heritage Garden to search for fungi of interest.
