Fungi Hunt

Sunday, 23 September, 2018 - 10:00

Join Fungal Punk Dave to explore the fascinating fungi of Crompton Moor.

Poisonous red toadstool

The hunt will be led by the legend - Fungal Punk Dave - who travels the length and breadth of the UK to hunt for all that is Fungi. Join Friends of Crompton Moor and be prepared to be educated and entertained by a most interesting teacher. So far they have found 153 different species of Fungi on Crompton Moor.  Come along and help them to find more. Sturdy shoes are recommended; dress appropriately for the weather; bring sun cream, and hand wipes should you wish to handle the fungi.
