We welcome new members and suggest you come along to a survey to meet us and see what we get up to. You can then decide if you want to join officially. Should you decide to join the annual fee is £10 for individuals and £12 for households. Please contact the Program or Membership Secretary before attending a survey or for further information about the group.
We have thirty or more members in the group of whom between 8 and 15 attend on any one survey. We have a varied amount of experience and skills but all share a passion and interest for fungi which we like to share with each other. Some of us are beginners, some have great national expertise and have published books and articles on fungi, some of us have microscopes to help with further identification and some prefer just to identify in the field. Again some of us like to take photographs of the fungi, which we all enjoy viewing after our AGM. Although some of us as individuals may enjoy eating fungi as a group we are very much involved with conservation and as a result we do not collect for eating on surveys. We have a written code of conduct which explains this in more detail. Apart from occasional specific exceptions agreed at the AGM we have a policy of not allowing dogs on our surveys.
