Fungal Foray at Rupert's Wood, Otterburn, Northumberland

Outdoor Event, 2.00pm-4.30pm

Fungi expert Dr Gordon Beakes will help us to find and identify some of the wonderful mushrooms, toadstools and fungi found in Rupert’s Wood.

The Rupert’s Wood Project has been in existence since the 1980’s run by volunteers from SCAN (Student Community Action Newcastle) which is based at Newcastle University.

Over the last decade Lord Redesdale (patron of SCAN) has opened up Rupert’s Wood and the surrounding estate for SCAN volunteers to undertake conservation, access and educational projects.

They have invited us to join them on this fungal foray which will start from the Redesdale Arms on the A68. There is a £4 charge for this event (pay on the day) and you must book in advance to reserve a place. To book call 07806 837348 or email

This event is in partnership with Newcastle University SCAN
