Thank you for your interest in our course. The accommodation at the centre is full, however we work closely with the local B&Bs to offer participants the chance to attend as a non-resident and stay within the local area. If you would like to attend as a non-resident provisionally book your place on the course and then confirm your accommodation.

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.
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.

Bursaries are available for this course. Please contact FSC Flatford Mill for details.

John Skinner has been studying lichens for 40 years concentrating on recording the lichens of Essex.

He has been leading successful courses at Flatford Mill for several years and is looking forward to helping people extend their knowledge and to encourage more recording of lichens.
