Land of Oak & Iron Wildlife Group: Autumn Fungal Forage @ Thornely Woodland Centre | England | United Kingdom

There’s a whole load of wild food all around us; it’s just a matter of knowing what is edible, what is poisonous and what to do with it. We’ll give you an introduction to the wild food you can forage for in the autumn, including roots, fruits, nuts and wild mushrooms. We’ll look at safe identification, discuss preparation and do some tasting. Suitable for ages 10 and over, sturdy footwear and outdoor clothing essential. To book please click here or call the Durham Wildlife Trust Office on 0191 584 3112, or visit https://durhamwt.com/events/ . Further details will be provided on booking. This course is part of the Geology & Wildlife Surveyors Project delivered through the Land of Oak & Iron, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund.
