UK Fungus Day Event, Sunday 6th October 2019

Gwent Fungi Group’ will be celebrating UK Fungus Day on Sunday 6th October with an open event at Pentwyn Farm (Gwent Wildlife Trust’s reserve in Penallt) from 2pm to 4.30pm.

This will include a guided walk to identify fungi, demonstrations of 20-30 named species, and if you bring along specimens they will identify them for you.

There’s no charge, everyone is welcome, and it will be a good chance to learn more about grassland fungi on the reserve’s meadows.

The event will be centred around the barn at Pentwyn Farm (NP25 4SE) and there are directions on the GWT web site.
