THE world of fungi is waiting to be explored in Kirklees.
The rich variety of fungi in Oakwell Hall Country Park near Birstall takes centre stage in a series of events on Saturday October 24 and Sunday 25.
In the first of a new programme of Oakwell Nature Club, youngsters get the opportunity to explore the park's fungi from 10am to 12noon.
The club is free to attend and is open to children aged five to 12 years. It aims to help them learn about and enjoy the natural environment.
A basic course will teach the elements of photographing fungi. The course, from 1pm-4.30pm, costs £15 per person and booking is essential.
Guided walks exploring the fungi will be held in the park on Sunday October 25.
To book a place on any of the fungi-themed events, contact Oakwell Hall Country Park, Nutter Lane, Birstall, tel: 01924 326240.
