We are an independent voluntary group of enthusiasts for mushrooms, toadstools and other fungi. Join us for informal, family-friendly walks in Buckinghamshire woodland and countryside to find, discover about and record fungi. We are not a group of foragers, however, and focus on learning how to identify fungi and recognise the commoner species in the field. Both edible and poisonous species are covered but collecting to eat is not one of our main aims.

Recognizing and recording the fungi, as part of a network of recording groups, helps us support the conservation of these vital organisms and is great fun! Newcomers are encouraged to learn to identify fungi with help from more experienced members. Please explore our web site to learn more.

If you would like to join us, please go to our membership section and return the application form with your subscription.

2024: We have two Springtime walks arranged; click here. for the Fungi Walks & Meetings page for full details. Our Autumn programme will be available after our AGM - probably in July.

Our popular Members' Finds page continues with a new page for 2024 Jan to June now in operation. All members are encouraged to participate either by sending in images of their latest finds or by enjoying and benefiting from the contributions of others. Please click here to find out more.
