    Abstract

    This report presents data from the Perth Urban Bushland Fungi (PUBF) Project and the Centre of Excellence for Climate Change and Woodland and Forest Health weekend workshop held on 27 and 28 June 2009 at Busselton, in the South west of Western Australia. The event was organized to survey fungi in the local tall Tuart forest but due to stormy weather conditions that weekend, safety issues dictated that it was too dangerous to enter the Tuart forest. Instead, the groups searched for fungi in two reserves near Busselton dominated by Peppermint woodland: on Saturday at Locke Nature Reserve, a DEC managed woodland reserve, and on Sunday at Captain Baudin Reserve, a coastal reserve managed by the Shire of Busselton. The weekend was organised with the assistance of the Busselton Naturalists’ Club and the Friends of Island Point. Thirty nine people took part in the Saturday foray and workshop, and 34 people endured very rainy and wintery conditions on Sunday to survey fungi at Captain Baudin Reserve. At each foray site, the participants were divided into five foray groups which were led by volunteer Leaders from the PUBF Project. This was the first ever survey of fungi for both of the Reserves.
