Fungus walk in East Carlton Countryside Park
Join John Haughton, a volunteer with the Corby Woodlands project, for an introduction to the fungi of the varied habitats in this site just west of Corby
East Carlton Countryside Park
Wednesday 7th September
10:00 - 12:00
East Carlton Countryside Park occupies 32ha and comprises a mixture of open parkland, woodland, small water bodies and visitor facilities.
The park is very different from the other Corby woodlands since it was formerly wood pasture with principally beech and lime trees. It is managed by North Northamptonshire Council's woodland rangers and about 50 volunteers in the Friends of East Carlton Country Park.
September is a great time to look for fungi especially when lguided by John Haughton, a knowledgeable enthusiast for all things mycological. He will introduce us to the park itself and to some of the many fascinating species of fungi that can be found here at this time of year.
In order to ensure a good experience for everyone we will be limiting numbers to 10 people and we would suggest that dogs, even on leads may conflict with attempts to look at a fungus on the ground.
Meet outside the cafe at East Carlton Countryside Park, East Carlton. The park is signed off the A427 road about 2 miles west of Corby. There is free parking available in the carpark (LE16 8YF)
Distance: no more than 2 miles.
Walking surfaces are generally good and should be accessible for mobility scooters
