2018 Autumn Study Week Field
Waterside Holiday Village
Exploring the fungal diversity of Cornwall
BMS Autumn Field Event
Venue:Waterside, Cornwall, Old Coach Road, Lanivet, Cornwall, P30 5JJ
Dates: Mon 8th Oct to Mon 15th Oct 2018
Venue website: www.watersidecornwall.com
For our Autumn event we are staying at the Waterside holiday village in Cornwall. Situated near Bodmin and being central it is ideally situated to reach a good variety of sites. Pauline Penna is our local organiser. Guest Mycologist - to be confirmed.
The Cornwall group has recently recorded several fungi new to Britain. The warm oceanic climate of Cornwall will no doubt have plenty more undiscov-ered new species of fungi just sitting waiting for our visit.
Although we are staying in holiday lodges, we are not going to be self cater-ing. Our accommodation will be ‘Full Board’ therefore they will be providing all meals including breakfast. The lodges have twin and double rooms, all the rooms are either en-suite or have an exclusive-use bathroom adjacent.
The workroom is apparently very large so they can accommodate a large group. If people book early and there is extra demand it may be possible to book extra lodges, however, if booking is left too late any extra lodges might get snapped up by holiday makers, therefore please book early.
11:30 – 12:30
