Fungi are not a plant and are in fact more closely related to animals. Fungi are crucial to the healthy functioning of the rainforest ecosystem, decomposing forest material and returning nutrients to the soil.

Join fungi guru Fran Guard for a walk through Mary Cairncross Reserve. Fran has been interested in fungi for more than 15 years and loves them all but especially the tiny ones called Marasmius that decompose leaf litter. Fran’s walk will focus on the role of fungi in the rainforest and how they interact with everything else.

All welcome.
