Council is hosting the FREE webinar ‘Fungi, what are they doing in our bushlands’ provided by Dr Shapphire Mcmullan-Fisher, Thursday 2 June, 8pm, registration essential

With the drop in temperatures and increase in soil moisture that autumn brings, you may have begun to notice a range of fungal forms emerging within the environment. Fungi and mushrooms (fungal 'fruiting bodies') abound with folklore, mystery and even fear. But what are they doing?

Join Dr Sapphire McMullan-Fisher as she helps to unpack some of the mystery of how fungi are essential contributors to ecological health within our bushland areas. Dr Sapphire has been involved in fungal research since the 1990s, and received her doctorate from The University of Tasmania on ‘Surrogates for cryptogam conservation – associations between mosses, macrofungi, vascular plants and environmental variables.’
