    We had to change venues that morning as there were no fungi to be found at the Bodalla forest park so ventured into a remnant pocket of warm temperat rainforest close by.
    The day was a great success and enjoyed by all with some education on the importance of fungi in our environment as natures great recycler.
    We discussed how fungi transport carbon from the tree into the earth via the mycorrhizal associatuion between the two organisms.
    We discussed the different types of fungi, ascomycetes, basidiomycetes and even the myxomycetes to give everyone an understanding of how the spores are produced from the fruiting bodies, which we see as mushrooms.
    many bought their cameras along and I hope to get a few images up on the Alcw shortley. T
