Are you interested in learning more about fungi? We organise regular outings to local woods and grasslands across the North East where you can learn about mushrooms in a friendly environment. No prior knowledge is needed and you can learn as little or as much as you like. For further details email us here.

Currently we have about 60 members with a broad range of experience and interests – some who just enjoy a guided walk, some who focus on photography and others who are interested in microscopy. Membership is £8.00 per year for individuals and £10.00 per year for families.

We publish a newsletter on a quarterly basis in which the membership can express their views, have short articles published, submit photographs and be part of a thriving community, even if unable to attend all the yearly events.

Apart from the forays and microscopy workshops we have an Annual General Meeting which is well attended and gives members an opportunity to become involved with the running of their Group.

Of course, the real work is in the collecting, identifying and recording of our foray finds. The latter two functions involve a considerable effort and commitment….our database records now exceed 20,000. By joining us you become part of a much larger organisation with global roots. Your membership can make a real difference to our understanding of the distribution and population of fungi in the North East of England
