Cotswold Fungus Group
|Website||Cotswold Fungus Group|
|Area||Wiltshire amd Gloucestershire|
Cotswold Fungus Group has over 100 members and organises regular fungus forays throughout the year. We foray a wide range of woodland and grassland sites throughout Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, and occasional joint forays with adjoining county fungus groups (Oxfordshire, North Somerset & Bristol, Forest of Dean, Worcestershire, etc). The group also organises a week-long fungus foray visit to France each autumn, including attendance at either an international or regional mycological festival. CFG holds a major autumn open-foray event culminating in a public fungus display at The National Arboretum, Westonbirt, attended by all of the local west-country fungus groups.
CFG forays are mostly Sundays, occasionally Saturdays, morning and/or afternoon with a pub lunch inbetween. The main foray season runs for 5 to 6 weekends in the spring months (April and May) and 10 to 12 weekends in the autumn (September to November). Occasional out-of-season forays are run from time to time, including our open-air picnic and foray at Westonbirt in January. Children are welcome if supervised, dogs permitted on some sites. Beginners are always genuinely welcomed and encouraged.
