We hope you will join us for Fungimap 8 where you can learn about macrofungi through talks, fungi walks and workshops. The focus of this event is to build up people’s knowledge of macrofungi. Every day we will get out in the bushland around Batmans Bay to look for fungi and learn about them in their natural habitat. Fungimap 8 is suitable for all levels of knowledge from beginner to expert. We are keen to create an environment for friendly sharing of enthusiasm and expertise.
If you have seen interesting fungi in your neighborhood or backyard, submit the details and/or a photograph of the fungus here.
You will be contributing to the National Australian Fungimap Database - an important and unique collection of information about Australia's fungi - and facilitating research by professionals and citizen scientists alike.
And, because so little is known about Australian fungi you could even be helping to document and describe a species that is new to science!
