Fungus foray in Bagley Woods


This is a joint event with members of the Fungus Survey of Oxfordshire.

Bagley Wood is one of the largest woodlands near Oxford, and is owned and actively managed for timber by St John’s College, Oxford. Some areas of ancient oak woodland survive, along with extensive areas of conifer and broadleaf plantation, and open grassy rides and glades. The mixture of different woodland habitats results in a good diversity of fungi.

We will be in the company of some of the most knowledgeable fungus enthusiasts in Oxfordshire, and are likely to have a very interesting and rewarding afternoon’s fungus foray.
