Wales Fungus Day

  • Saturday 2 October 2021
  • 11am to 3pm
How to book

Both 90-minute walks, which begin at 11am and 1.30 from the Botanic Garden’s Gatehouse entrance, will explore the beautiful and weird fungi around the Garden.

A special focus will be on the 10 waxcap fungi, known to fruit on the Garden’s sheep-grazed pastures, which have the same international conservation status as the polar bear, snow leopard, giant armadillo and Sumatran orangutan.

There will also be a table display of fungi fruiting bodies that have been found by local mycologists, a great way to see what an incredible range of fungi live in South Wales.

No need to prebook. Botanic Garden admission charges still apply.
