Details

Staffordshire Fungus Group was formed in 1994 to cater for the increasing number of people sharing a fascination for the fungi of Staffordshire. We are a specialist sub-group of the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and work with the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery where the County's Records are kept.

We run a series of Forays and other activities at various times of the year.

The Group exists to:

  • record species of fungi and their distribution in Staffordshire
  • foster an awareness of the need to conserve fungi and their habitats
  • work with other organisations to further the study of fungi
  • liaise with the British Mycological Society in their nationwide recording schemes, conservation and survey projects.

Membership of Staffordshire Fungus Group gives you privileged access to the website, keeping you informed of activities within the County and further afield. Members receive the foray programme, the group's annual newsletter and details of any indoor meetings such as workshops and book days. Membership costs £5 per household per year and is open to anyone with an interest in fungi, from beginners onwards.
