This mushroom hunt into Broadhurst Clough (North Manchester) is a great opportunity to see some of our fascinating native fungi. Autumn is the best time to go fungi spotting and you can expect to see a startling array of shapes and colours in the woods and green spaces in the Clough. Delve into the magical world of fungi on this walk, look out for Jelly Ear, Turkey Tail and Lawyer's Wigs and learn about what’s edible and what’s not.
Meet at Broadhurst Park Entrance, near the junction with St Marys Road and Joyce St, Next to Alexian Brothers Nursing Home, Manchester M40 0BL
This walk involves areas with muddy and uneven surfaces - please wear suitable footwear and outdoor clothing.
