Welcome to the home of the Fungus Conservation Trust (formerly Association of British Fungus Groups), serving interest in UK fungi and foraying from Caithness to Cornwall. If you are tempted by the idea of discovering the fascinating world of mushrooms and toadstools, or want to expand your existing knowledge, then this charity is here for you.
The Trust is for individual membership and groups alike, and its focus is on field mycology, or foraying - getting out in the woods and fields at local level to discover the world of fungi in all its fascinating forms.
The Trust also delivers a range of centralised goods and services including its open forum, stains and reagents, hand lenses, reference CDs, educational DVDs, talks, public forays, identification help, and other member support.
The Trust encourages people of all ages and stages, especially children, to explore the world of fungi and discover these extraordinary and vital aspects of our countryside with confidence and in safety. Children of today are the mycologists of tomorrow.
We invite you to explore these pages and learn more of what we can do for you in discovering the exciting and very different world of mushrooms and toadstools.
The first in the series of broadcast quality FCT fungus videos, each running for 30 minutes and playable on PC or domestic TV, is available to anyone who would like to learn more about the fascinating world of fungi.
