Devon Fungus Group Forays

Our 2024 programme is being prepared and not available yet.

We organise forays from March to December each year. There are forays most weekends in the autumn when the larger fungi are most in evidence and once a month or so at other times of the year. Please use the contact form if you are interested in joining and would like to take your interest in mycology seriously.
