An opportunity to study the spring fungi of South Devon
2018 Spring study meeting
Venue: Slapton Ley Field Studies Centre, Sands Road, Slapton, Devon
The Field Study Centre established in 1959 manages the 214 hectare SSSI nature reserve as an "outdoor laboratory" for education and conservation educational courses and research. More fungal research has probably been carried out at Slapton than on any other nature re-serve in Britain. Slapton Ley is the largest natural lake in south-west England. Although it is only separated from the sea by a narrow shingle bar, it is entirely freshwater. The lake is surrounded by reedbeds, marshes and woodland habitats, and if this is not enough we will also be visiting other amazing sites within the local area. Our Guest Mycologist for the week will be Paul Cannon.
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.
