Beginner’s Guide to Lichens

Golden-eye Lichen by Steve Martin

Lichens come in a vast array of shapes and colours. Though daunting at first, there are many common species which can be easily identified once you know what to look for. Cornwall is also home to many rare and in some cases bizarre species.

This workshop is for complete beginners. Maxine will guide you in deciphering the structure of a lichen and split them into identifiable groups, making them easier to determine the genus or species. After an introductory classroom session we will go out to look for lichens at St Andrew's Churchyard and Okeltor Mine.
