Templeton Woods Foray Sunday 2/10-22
October 2, 2022 @ 12:00 pm UTC
A free foray with the Mycology Society!
A 2-3 hour walk and foray in a forested area roughly 15 minutes from Dundee City Centre – Templeton Woods, north of Camperdown Park (same spot as last week). We will make our way through the woods, picking notable or edible mushrooms, stopping for a break towards the end when we also will try to identify most of what we’ve found. Cameron and Justė will be holding the walk. We have also hired Fletcher to give us a bit more guidance on what mushrooms we’ll be picking!
IMPORTANT TICKET INFO:
With so many new members we are mainly looking for this to be an introductory session for many who have not been on any of our walks. We have had to change our approach a bit, now with so many new paying members, they are prioritised, and tickets are released ahead of time for them. If there are spots left after two days, non-members can sign up. There are a limited amount of spots.
If you are a member of the society, we will repay your bus ticket after the event. (We will give you £3 in cash. If you pay for a student ticket return to Camperdown from Seagate it should equate to roughly that amount!)
This is subject to change but the bus we will probably take is one at 11.45 from Seagate main bus station. If you want to get there by other means or want to hop on the bus before or after the Seagate Bus Station, let us know! We’ll do a reminder post on Saturday as well.
Poisonous mushroom disclaimer: Under NO circumstances are you allowed to pick a mushroom, bring it home and eat it without consulting with the committee first. We must be 100% sure we can identify the mushrooms we find before we try eating them!
– Good shoes, preferably mud-proof
– Good clothes (It’s getting cold!
– A snack or lunch
– Money (cash/card/student card or YoungScotcard) to pay for bus ticket
Optional: Something to put mushrooms in. A plastic bag is not ideal but works in a pinch. Tote bags are better!
See you on Sunday!
