This intermediate level weekend on lichen identification is for anyone with some initial experience of this group who would like to take their interest several stages further.
As in our March course, there will be a combination of field excursions, microscope work and use of keys to help you with lichen identification. At the end of the course participants should be able to apply a number of simple microscope techniques that are essential for proper identification.
The content is also appropriate for anyone wishing to contribute to their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
John Skinner is the Manager of Southend Museum and has extensive experience working with the lichens of the region.
He is looking forward to helping people extend their knowledge and to encourage more recording of lichens.
