Cotswold Fungus Group


Wiltshire and Gloucestershire


Cotswold Fungus Group (CFG) organises regular fungus forays throughout the spring and autumn, when we foray a wide range of woodland and grassland sites throughout Gloucestershire and North Wiltshire. The aims of the group are very much Conservation, Education & Fun.

CFG forays are currently on Saturdays, morning and/or afternoon with a pub lunch inbetween. Occasional out-of-season forays are run from time to time, including our annual open-air picnic and foray at Westonbirt in January.

There is a strong social side to the group, we have a thriving facebook page for advice, ID's and pictures etc, a microscopy club, a free library, and we have a photo competition. CFG also visit France/Wales each autumn for a week-long fungus foray.

Children are very welcome if supervised, & dogs are permitted on most sites. Beginners are always genuinely welcomed and encouraged.

Full details on the group's activities, foray schedule, contact information, membership fees & application form, information for beginners, and much more can be found on our website at

CFG also hold a major foray event for National Fungus Day culminating in a public fungus display at the National Arboretum, Westonbirt.
