John Dow has sent in this pic with these musings:
I be a little intrigued by the wording on these new signs. It’s as though the sign is for people who have at least some knowledge of what a death cap mushroom is.
To my mind the space could have been better utilised to offer a clearer warning about death cap mushrooms and the need to avoid picking any mushrooms as even the apparently harmless and well known varieties can turn out to be the fatal death cap variety.
I’m going to stick my neck out here and state that these signs are essentially useless in warning at risk groups of the dangers of picking mushrooms in the ACT.
Your thoughts dear readers?
