Take a peek into the amazing world of mushrooms!

Dynamic Dunescapes Cumbria invites you to join us on a 'Mushroom foray' at Sandscale Haws Nature Reserve.

We'll be exploring the fantastic world of fungi, and discovering the mushrooms that call sand dunes their home. We will be running two guided walks during the day, led by Colin Doull:

Morning guided walk: 10:00am-12:45pm

Afternoon guided walk: 1:00pm-2:45pm

Don't forget to bring comfortable and adequate clothes according to the weather forecast. Boots are recommended and a water bottle to keep you hydrated. We will be walking at a slow pace, however we will be walking over sand and uneven terrain so a reasonable level of mobility is required.

Places are free , but booking is required due to limited spaces. Please chose your guided walk time on the ticket section.
