2019 Autumn study week Field
L & A Outdoor Centre, Goytre, West Glamorgan, Wales
An exploration of the fungi in Glamorgan
Autumn Fungal Recording & Study Week
Dates:Saturday 19th October to
Saturday 26th October
Tutor: Geoffrey Kibby
Glamorgan and the adjacent counties have some wonderful mycological sites: from semi natural woodland, sheltered woodland ravines and extensive sand dune complexes, to my-cologically rich, man-made habitats such as old mining spoil tips. It will be difficult to se-lect just a weeks worth of sites. At the L&A Centre we staying in lodges (most rooms are not en-suite) and we will have use of the whole recreational area, so there will be no short-age of workroom space. Our Guest Mycologist for the week will be Geoffrey Kibby.
