Celebrating fungi

11 October 2011

Local primary schools are helping to design a new fungi art feature at Wigg Island to complement the nature reserve's array of mushrooms and toadstools.


Larger-than-life sculptures

The new trail will include larger-than-life fungi sculptures with embedded information panels to provide year-round interest and help visitors learn more about the site's wealth of weird and wonderful giant puffballs, honey fungus and shaggy ink caps.


Children provide creative spark

Designed with the help of children from Castlefields Infants, Woodside County Primary, 1st and 10th Runcorn Brownies and 1st Weston & Weston Point Rainbows, the sculptures will feature fairy mushrooms made from metals and textiles and resin.


Funding secured by The Mersey Forest

Funding for the project was secured by The Mersey Forest from local chemicals manufacturer Ineos ChlorVinyls through the Landfill Communities Fund.
