Time for mushrooms!

The forests are full of mushrooms, so now it's time to get out a basket and go mushroom hunting! Every Sunday from now until the end of September, there will be fungus control stations at several places around the country. You can visit them to learn from the knowledgeable inspectors, whether or not you have any mushrooms. Sunday 2nd September is Fungi Day, when everyone has the opportunity to join the Fungi Association on one of their trips to the forest!
