Alternatively, Join the Group
The Group meets regularly to identify and record fungi in North Somerset (Vice County 06). We encourage an interest in the importance of fungi in the environment. Our main activities are forays, which often include joint meetings with other SW Fungus Groups, and annual workshops. We strive to promote the conservation of fungi and their threatened habitats. Membership of the group is open to all individuals who support these aims.
