Go hunting for fantastic fungi.

Fungi can grow in all sorts of places: in the woods, in the park – even in your garden.

  • Some fungi are brightly coloured, some are brown – which is your favourite?
  • Did you know that some fungi smell sweet and others smell rotten?
  • Search for mushrooms under leaf litter and on dead wood

Remember – some fungi can be very poisonous, so never touch them.
