Know Your Fungi

The latest Pigeon Post had an article about fungi found in Otatara. As its a great time to spot fungi we have extended the competition until Monday 2 May 22 so you can go out and spot some over the Easter holidays. See how many you can name - common names are fine - or even made up names are fun and we will judge the most correct and best names and give out prizes for the best three answers. So - get your fungi eyes out in Otarara and see what you can find. Send answers by email to Enable JavaScript to view protected content. by 2nd May 22. If you spot any interesting fungi take a photo and send it as well and we will try and identify it.
