funky fungi

As part of National Science Week, the South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board is hosting a field walk and talk at Tailem Bend on Sunday the 14th of August 2022. The events will focus on the local fungi and threatened native grasslands of the region.

At 1pm, you are invited to attend a family-friendly guided field walk in the Mowantjie Willauwar Conservation Park. You will be discovering local fungi and recording your sightings during the walk. This is your opportunity to become a citizen scientist. The conservation park is about 10 minutes drive from town along Princes Highway.

Then, at 3:30pm, you are welcome to join distinguished panellists for presentations on the role of fungi in our environment. These presentations will be held in the town hall function room. The panellists include Nicola Barnes from Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board, Teresa Label from Adelaide Botanic Gardens and Sophie Hoffman from Adelaide University.

Both events are free, however, bookings are required and can be made online via their website. Tailem Bend is approximately 95 kilometres southeast of Adelaide.
