Alison Pouliot WORKSHOP – A Galaxy of Earthstars, Ruffy, Vic

June 9, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm


This 3.5 hour workshop with both theoretical and practical components will introduce participants to the diversity, ecology and curiosities of the Kingdom Fungi, specific to fungi found around Ruffy and surrounds but also within a wider Australian context.

It includes a one hour interactive session around a specimen display table where participants will learn the basics of fungus identification, fungal ecology, and the natural and cultural history of fungi. Fungal specimens from the local area will be displayed, discussed and examined. The edibility and toxicity of fungi will also be discussed.

Following the indoor session will be an exciting foray through various local habitat types to search for species of interest. Participants will learn to recognise the various diagnostic characteristics used to identify fungi in the field and understand their ecological significance in local ecosystems

This workshop is sponsored and hosted by Hughes Creek Catchment Collaborative please contact Janet Hagen for bookings.
