Bass Coast Landcare Network is delving deep into the little known fungal realms in a full day workshop with Natural History Photographer and Research Ecologist Alison Pouilot, this May in Archies Creek. Learn the basics of mushroom identification, examine and discuss samples, even bring your own specimens for identification. Read on for more details.
Alison is fascinated with the design, diversity and connectedness of living things. Her photographic assignments have led her to many remote and unique environments, both within Australia and overseas. Alison has a deep concern for the rapidly changing state of our natural environments. Through her images she endeavours not only to share her wonderment of the natural world, but to reinforce the need for its nurturing and protection.
This workshop on Sunday 7th of May starts at 10.30am at the Archies creek hall and will delve into the diversity, ecology and curiosities of the Kingdom Fungi, specifically to fungi found in the region but also within wider Australian contexts.
It includes an interactive and illustrated seminar on the basics of mushroom identification, fungal ecology, and the natural and cultural history of fungi. Various fungi will examined and discussed during the workshop. Participants are welcome to bring along specimens for identification.
Following the indoor session we will partake in an exciting foray through local habitats at a local property in Ryanston to search for species of interest and then finish up at 4.30pm.
Cost for this sought after seminar is $50 per person which includes a local food lunch.
