Join us for a fascinating online talk all about fungi. A ‘visual running buffet’ as he himself describes it, Ali will share with us his favourite facets of fungi – what they are, what they do, where to find them, how to identify them and more.
From the strangest smells (suncream and engine oil) to the weirdest shapes (Octopus tentacles) and beyond, the talk will be filled with facts, anecdotes, games, models and more! There’ll be a Q&A at the end where Ali will happily try and answer any questions you might have on the subject. He’s even up for an online ID challenge if anyone wants to hold their mushroom up to the camera for identifying!
The Fungi Guy is a larger than life character in the mycological community, leading forays and workshops across the country with boundless enthusiasm and fizzing passion.
