Preliminary notice: 2021 FUNNZ Fungal Foray

Submitted by Bevan Weir on Wed, 28/10/2020 - 9:05pm

The 2021 Fungal foray will be held at Oban, Stewart Island Rakiura, 11 to 17 April 2021. This is a replacement for the 2020 foray that was not held due to COVID-19. Those who registered for the 2020 foray will have first priority for places in 2021.

More details will follow soon, but the foray will be similar to what was planned last time. Participants will need to book their own travel to the island and accommodation; places may be limited. A suggestion is the Stewart Island Backpackers.  You can get an individual room, but they are set up for three to a room with an individual cost of about $40 per person per night.

Please remember that if you wish to collect specimens on your way to and from the foray you will need to arrange your own collecting permits or landowner permissions. For registered foray participants, a permit to collect in designated places on Stewart Island Rakiura is being arranged by foray organisers.



I am interested in the 2021 fungal foray - could you please send me further information and add me to your mailing list.
