Juniper Hall FSC - Juniper Hall Field Centre, Dorking, Surrey, RH5 6DA
Brian Spooner will be our Guest Mycologist/Tutor and we will be foraying at some of Brian's favourite sites in Surrey. The foray localities will all be within the county boundary, and include a good range of habitats, including acid heathland areas, woodland, and wetland. There are also areas of chalk surrounding Juniper Hall, including Mickleham and Box Hill. Although the localities will include part of the Esher Commons SSSI, which has one of the longest fungi lists of any site in Britain, currently well in excess of 3300 taxa, Also, other sites which are mycologically little surveyed, especially for spring fungi, will be visited. There is therefore the potential to add much to our knowledge of the fungi of the county, and provide further valuable data towards the ongoing preparation of a comprehensive account of the fungi of Surrey.
