Blackening Waxcap at Glen Clova, Cairngorms.

We will be introducing the work Plantlife are doing in the Cairngorms and the fungi we’ll be looking for during the day.

On the walk you will be practicing ID, learning about waxcap fungi conservation and habitat preferences, as well as surveying to gather information about these understudied species.

Please email to reserve a place.
