You are invited to join Geoff Lay from the Field Naturalists Club of Victoria for a guided walk and talk on the fascinating world of fungi.
Fungi are one of the most diverse biological groups on earth. They are critical for the growth of most Australian plants by forming relationships with plants and making nutrients more readily available to the plants. They also play a crucial ecosystem role in breaking down organic matter and returning nutrients to the soil.
We’ll learn about the vast range of fungi that exists in Whittlesea, from the large and easy to observe, to the tiny and delicate, and maybe ones you’ve never noticed before.
This will be an outdoor event so dress appropriately. Light morning tea will be provided.
Date: Sunday 7 May 2017
Time: 9:30am – 12pm
Location: Whittlesea Community Activity Centre (57 Laurel St, Whittlesea)
For further information contact Council’s Sustainable Land Management Officer, Mark Williams, on 9217 2471 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
