Two stand alone days (10.30 - 3.30 pm) - participants may chose to attend on either or both days - accommodation on Saturday night can be included. The days are linked in that fungal identification is closely linked to being able to identify our native British trees.

The tree day will include illustrated talks on our native trees and their uses plus aids to identification and some folklore about trees. The central part of the day will be an excursion to put theory into practice looking at a range of native and introduced trees in the Peak District. Patrick is the author of Collins How to ID trees

The fungus day will include illustrated talks about fungi and the features used in identification plus a session on edible fungi. The central part of the day will be an excursion to look for and identify fungi in both grassland and woodland sites. Patrick is the author of four books about fungi including Collins Gem Guide to Mushrooms.

Based at St Michael's Environmental Education Centre, Main Road, Hathersage, Derbyshire S32 1BB
