Lichen courses

Lichens are a popular subject on iSpot, and are also studied as part of the Neighbourhood Nature OU course. The British Lichen Society has asked me to pass on details of their series of courses on finding and identifying lichens.

The courses are listed here:

See especially the section headed "FIELD STUDIES COUNCIL LICHEN COURSES 2011", some of which are part of OPAL, and lots of other events are listed as well.

I gather the early season courses have booked up fast, so make sure of your place on one pater in the year!
