Although the world is in lockdown, the fungi are running riot out there.

The recent rains have set us in stead for bumper mushroom season. Why are fungi important in our gardens and forests? What makes Australian fungi so special? And how do we differentiate the desirable from the deadly?

This highly interactive online workshop introduces participants to the basic skills for identifying fungi though guided examination of their own collected specimens, using multiple senses.

PRESENTER: Alison Pouliot

PARTICIPANT REQUIREMENTS: This workshop will be held using a video conferencing platform JitsiMeet. Participants will need a computer with a good internet connection, camera and microphone. A link to the workshop will be sent to participants before the session.

Participants are encouraged to collect a mushroom or two from their gardens to identify during the workshop.
