Leader: Mark Wright

Location: Magilligan Field Centre, with a site visit to Binevenagh

Mark Wright will present this identification course which aims to familiarise participants with some grassland fungi, in particular the waxcaps. We will develop the skills needed to identify fungi based on field characters and also gain an awareness of the use of Waxcaps in assessing importance of grassland fungi sites. The course will begin with a talk/workshop at Magilligan Field Centre then we will look at grassland fungi found on Binevenagh NNR.
