Grand Peckham fungal foray – Saturday 5 November, 11am – 2pm

Nature Conservation Lewisham

Trooping funnel (D. Greenwood/London Wildlife Trust) Trooping funnel mushrooms

A long-distance walk led by fungi expert David Warwick through a variety of historic Southwark green spaces and nature reserves


Join the London Wildlife Trust and local fungi expert David Warwick for an exploration of fungi found in some of Southwark’s most well loved green spaces.

The walk will begin at Nunhead Cemetery, then moving onto One Tree Hill, Peckham Rye Park and finishing up at the Centre for Wildlife Gardening on Marsden Road where we will examine the specimens discovered during the walk.

This is not a culinary foraging walk but a way to learn more about the ecology of urban fungi. David is an expert in London’s fungi and will be able to educate attendees on the impacts of foraging in London’s green spaces.

This is a free walk but donations are welcome.

Sorry but this walk is not suitable for dogs.
