Today you have the opportunity to explore Hagg Wood for the many kinds of fungi which typically emerge in the undergrowth of the wood at this time of year. We will be guided around the wood by Malcolm Greaves, an enthusiastic amateur mycologist and Recorder of the Mid-Yorkshire Fungus Group. The many varieties and shapes of the mushrooms and other fungi to be found in the wood add to the Autumnal colours of the wood, though typically should definitely not be eaten as they may well also be poisonous.
We will meet at 5.00pm at the main Notice Board in the wood near the Intake Lane entrance.
As parking space is limited, if you are coming by car it is best to find an appropriate parking space along Intake Lane before it becomes a single track.
Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for exploring the undergrowth in the wood, where brambles do grow! The event is free to members of FHW but there will be a charge of £5 for non-members.
