A guided fungi walk led by Sydenham Hill Wood Conservation Officer Daniel Greenwood
Learn about the crucial importance of fungi in our woods and the wider world. We will be identifying common woodland fungi and learning about their ecology.
Without fungi we could not survive, so dependent are we on its ability to support our trees and wild plants, and to recycle organic matter.
Please note this is not a culinary foraging walk. Information will be given about the effects of consuming mushrooms on the individual and also the ecosystem. We discouraged foraging of wild plants and mushrooms at Sydenham Hill Wood Local Nature Reserve as it is a small, part-ancient woodland in an urban setting with 100,000 visitors each year.
This is a free walk but a minimum donation of £2 is suggested to support the London Wildlife Trust’s conservation project at Sydenham Hill Wood
