About Staffordshire Fungus Group

Staffordshire Fungus Group was formed in 1994 to cater for the increasing number of people sharing a fascination for the fungi of  Staffordshire.  We are a specialist sub-group of the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and work with the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery where the County's Records are kept.

We run a number of fungus forays and other events for members and the public throughout the year.

We add records of our finds to local and national databases.

The Group exists to:
  • record species of fungi and their distribution in Staffordshire
  • foster an awareness of the need to conserve fungi and their habitats
  • work with other organisations to further the study of fungi
  • liaise with the British Mycological Society in their nationwide recording schemes, conservation and survey projects.
Membership costs £5 per household per year and is open to anyone with an interest in fungi, from beginners onwards. Members can attend all forays and events organised by the group.
