St Helens Council’s Ranger Service is inviting residents to join members of the team on a short foray to hunt for local species of mushrooms.

Event-goers will take in the beautiful green scenery at Clock Face Country Park on Sunday, October 30 with local fungi expert Tom Ferguson.

Tom and the Rangers will point out the various types of fungi – edible or otherwise – that are present in our local ecosystem, including the colourful but poisonous fly agaric, with its distinctive red cap and white

spots.

Meet at the main entrance by the noticeboard, Sunday 30 October, 10am. Stout footwear and waterproofs are advised in case of inclement weather.

Dogs are welcome on the walk. For more details contact the Ranger Service on 01925 229021.
