UK Fungus Day 2013

UK Fungus Day is fast approaching: Sunday 13 October! There are lots of events happening around the country on that day (and just before/after), aimed at inspiring people to find out about fungi.

The event is organised by the British Mycological Society and partners, and full details are at:

iSpot is working with UK Fungus Day to help promote an interest in fungi, and we're asking people to tag their observations from Fungus Day events with the tag #ukfungusday - just start typing #ukf... and it will appear in the drop-down list.

We're hoping that this activity will draw in some more fungi experts to provide input to the iSpot observations, but as ever we're grateful to those of you who are already regular contributors to the fungi section of iSpot.

UK Fungus Day is sponsored by The British Mycological Society in partnership with the Society of Biology 'Biology Week'. It is supported by:

iSpot at the National Botanic Garden of Wales

I will be representing iSpot at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on Sunday 13th October - UK Fungus Day.
It is a day packed full of fungi friendly activities and I will be showcasing some of iSPot's fantastic Welsh fungi observations. Please come along if you are in the area - it would be great to meet you. I'll be in the big glass dome!
