Indoor Meetings Programme - Autumn 2018

 

Meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of each month at the Great Meeting Rooms, Unitarian Chapel, East Bond Street, Leicester.  Directions by road can be provided on request.  Parking is available from 7.00pm in the courtyard to the right of the Chapel entrance.  For non-drivers the chapel is located only a few hundred yards from St Margarets Bus Station.  Meetings start promptly at 7.30pm – doors are open at 7.00pm when tea and coffee will be available.      

Visitors to our meetings are very welcome - there is a visitors’ fee of £1.

 

At this meeting we will discuss and demonstrate some of the microscopic features that we use to identify fungi.  There should still be fresh fungi around, even though we are late in the season, so please bring in any good quality specimens that you can find. We hope to have digital cameras available which will show micro-images onto laptop screens or tablets and onto
the projector screen.

Identification Evening

This meeting will be a discussion session based on fresh specimens brought in by members.  The various finds will be identified from their field characters so this meeting provides an early season revision for established members and will be very helpful for beginners.  The success of the evening depends on having lots of specimens available so please try to make a collection from your home locality and bring them along to the meeting.

Identification Evening

 

 

 

This will be a follow-on to the September meeting and will follow the same format.  A different range of fungi should be available as we are later in the fungus season and there will be new species for us to examine and identify.  Once again the meeting will depend on members bringing in specimens to examine so please try to contribute a collection from your home area.  

(Note that this meeting follows a morning foray at Whitemoors Wood, Shenton, which should provide some interesting species to bring to the meeting)
