The mycological richness of the province of Zamora will turn the capital into the first National Congress of Mycology, which will be held from November 4 to 20 with the participation of the first swords of the national sector.

The project has an economic appropriation of 20,000 euros in the budgets of the Provincial Government in its decisive commitment to the promotion of the sector. The congress aims to relaunch the mycology and make Zamora a referent of fungi at the level of Soria, given that the slopes of the Sierra de la Culebra are the most appreciated in boletales. In addition, "we are the province of Spain that has more packers of mycological products but, however, we get little performance," says Pedro Prez, president of the Zamora Mycological Association, who yesterday conducted one of the preparatory meetings for the congress.

The call will also involve "the involvement of schoolchildren, outings to the field if time permits, high level speakers and even a specialist who will demonstrate dogs looking for truffles," said the head of the association, overturned with the new stage .

The financing of the congress rests with the Provincial Council which, once again, puts itself at the service of the association to promote the sector and facilitate the development of the convention. To its economic departure will be added "the contributions that we can make from the collective" and the foreseeable collaboration of the Scientific Foundation Caja Rural, "in addition to the involvement of Azehos".

For its part, the Ramos Carrin will host an exhibition with the best photographs collected during the last years fruit of the annual contest of the association.

The celebration of an international mycological congress instead of national is still part of the aspirations of the group.
