“BioBlitz” and “Meet the Species” events

Forays for the National BioBlitz

Meet The Species Events

Volunteers needed

On the above dates we will be going out to record as many species of fungi as possible for BioBlitz, a campaign for UK wide biodiversity.

Friday 28th September.

The National Trust have been amazing and have allowed four forays to take place for these special events; this is the first of all three starting at Newtimber Wood, a National Trust Woodland near Brighton off the A23. This will be a full day recording as much as possible with the added advantage of being able to go back to Saddlecombe Farm, National Trust HQ’s after our walk to use the facilities at the farm and hold a workshop to research and identify our finds further with the use of microscopes.

Friday 5th October

Wolstonbury Hill, Clayton. A National Trust Wood near Hassocks off the A23 Brighton. This will be a full day recording as much as possible with the added advantage of being able to go back to Saddlecombe Farm, National Trust HQ’s after our walk to use the facilities at the farm and hold a workshop to research and identify our finds further with the use of microscopes.

Friday 12th October

Brighton and Hove City Council have kindly agreed for a A “Meet the Species” event to take place at Coldean Woods in Brighton, next to Stanmer Woods. This will also be tagged as a BioSphere Event.

Friday 26th October

This foray will be held at Southwick, this is a National Trust site called Whitelot Bottom, it is part of Southwick Hill and we will be recording Waxcaps and other fungi.

Friday 16th November

This foray will be the last one with the National Trust and it will be held at Slindon. A large area of sweeping downland divided by deep valleys. There are hanging beech woods and old wood pasture to focus on our recording for the day.
