The National Trust Volunteer Fungi and Lichen Survey is holding a free Entoloma and grassland fungi workshop at the fantastic Moorland Discovery Centre, Longshaw Estate, Peak District over the weekend Sept 10-11 2016. This should be a good time for Entolomas. Longshaw is amongst the best sites in the UK for grassland fungi - but Entolomas are a difficult genus.
The Entoloma workshop was launched with the support of Jon Stewart, General Manager of the Peak District National Trust. It will be a low key event with no national/international experts present. Only an enthusiasm for fungi is required and a wish to learn a bit more about them. The idea is that the people who turn up will pool their knowledge. A few microscopes will be set up, but mostly reliance will be on the jizz of the fungi found. The Saturday is optional, being mostly a collection day and Sunday being the main workshop day. We will be using PowerPoint for presentations. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. There is a cafe close by, as well as a pub.
Please contact Rob Foster, our grassland specialist at Longshaw, if you would like to join us, and also if you would like to make a presentation, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
