Join us for an autumnal fungi discovery at Bere Marsh Farm

Led by expert mycologist Andy Knott from the Dorset Fungi Group, we'll explore a variety of habitats at Bere Marsh Farm. 

From the tiniest emergent mushrooms so easily overlooked to flamboyant conspicuous species like Fly Agaric, Andy will help identify what we find and have plenty of fascinating facts to share along the way. 

Part of the excitement of a fungi foray is the anticipation of finding some unusual, and at a similar event last year we discovered some nationally rare fungi species including Lacquered Bracket (Ganoderma lucidum), Medusa Mushroom (Agaricus bohusii), Oak Bracket Fungus (Pseudoinonotus dryadeus) and Wrinkled Peach Mushroom (Rhodotus palmatus).

Grab a drink and bite at the Buzz Cafe

The Buzz Cafe will be open during the event, where you can buy delicious locally sourced sweet treats, hot savouries, ice cream and drinks.
