Meet the RSPB team at the Consall Nature Park on Sunday 6 November from 1 pm – 4 pm, where they’ll be putting the ‘fun’ in fungi with their special ‘Fungal Foray’, guiding guests through the little-known yet beautiful woodland of the Churnet Valley.

Join expert ‘Fungal Punk Dave’ on a three-hour walk to discover more about fungi, and to explore a less-visited reserve in the Churnet Valley. This guided walk is suitable for both fungal lovers and novices, with no prior knowledge of fungi required – just an interest and eagerness to learn more about fungi (they can really grow on you), and wildlife in general.

The tour will include some muddy and steep paths, although there will be plenty of time to rest and admire the fungi.

Becky Blackman, Visitor Experience Officer for RSPB Coombes Valley says:

“Join us for an exciting walk in the Churnet Valley. This is a great opportunity to get stuck in to the diverse and mysterious world of fungi; learn about what it is and how to ID this intriguing phenomenon of nature.”

Spaces are limited (there won’t be mushroom) so booking is essential. Prices are £4 per adult, and £2 per child, with 20% off for members. This area can get very muddy and slippery this time of year (when it rains, it spores) so appropriate footwear is advised.
