Wonderful Waxcaps

This autumn, join FSC Nettlecombe Court and help them as they survey their surrounding grasslands for wonderful waxcap fungi.  Nettlecombe Court Field Studies Council Centre is located near Monksilver, Somerset and specialises in teaching people of all ages about ecology, geography and other environmental sciences in and around Exmoor National Park.

The survey dates are: Saturday 12th October (this day includes fungi ID training by Michael Jordan from the Association of British Fungus Groups), and Sunday 10th November.

Both of the survey days will start at 10am and will aim to finish by 3-4pm, depending on variables such as the weather and abundance of waxcaps. There will also be tea and cake provided for willing volunteers!
