Fungi form Australia's second largest kingdom yet they rarely rate a mention despite their importance to biodiversity and as the networkers of ecosystems. Ecologist and field mycologist Dr Sapphire McMullen-Fisher will introduce us to an often neglected part of our natural world and highlight some amazing facts including fungal connections with plant roots and their importance in conservation and bushland restoration. This workshop will cover fungal identification basics and ecology and include a walk in local bushland. 9:00am- 3:00pm at the CWCN Centre in Chapel Hill.
