Szeged Fungus Association aims to promote nature conservation, particularly the protection of macrofungi. We achieve this goal through information campaigns, public lectures, education, research, and providing support to research and conservation organizations. We raise your attention to fungi at events, like the annual fungus exhibition "Pet the Fungi", we inspire you at the Mycology Department lecture series on our YouTube channel, we teach you mushrooms on our Field Mycology Course where we provide free and open occasions twice a year to have an insight, we move you to our free and open forays, or you can join our research program as a volunteer. The commitment to nature and fungi protection and expertise are provided by the Szeged Fungus Association.
