One of the best ways to learn about fungi is to join a foray with a fungi group. These are run in the ‘fungi season’ – autumn, winter and spring – when the fruit-bodies are visible. Some fungi can be seen for most of the year such as the leathery and bracket fungi, but most ‘fruit’ after rainfall in the cooler months. Natural bushland settings are the best places to see a wide variety of fungi but urban parks with native vegetation can be good spots for forays too.
Fungal groups, field naturalists, environment and friends groups typically run forays and we publish details and links in our upcoming events section of the website. And if you subscribe to our eNews we will let you know when new ones are registered with us.
If your group is planning to run a foray, let us know so we can post it on the website:
