UK Fungus Day

6th October 2019

Event Overview

Have you always wondered how the mushroom got it's spots?  Or perhaps you would like to grow your own mushrooms? The fungal kingdom is arguably the largest kingdom of organisms on this planet and without them, we humans could not survive on Earth. They are a vital component of the terrestrial ecosystem, they are the planet’s best recyclers; fungi provide foods and medicines and even put the flavour in chocolate! Yet some fungi can rot our homes and food and cause devastating loss to plant and animal populations. Find out how your school can get involved in UK Fungus Day with these lovely resources from the British Mycological Society.
