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.

The non-resident price includes evening meal and packed lunch.
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.
Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service (SBIS) and Suffolk Naturalists Society (SNS) have kindly offered a bursary to support individuals who wish to attend this course to help provide people with the skills and experience to identify and record Suffolk wildlife. Further info can be found HERE.
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.
