SOF – Lichens: Looking at Small Things

May 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Wednesday 22nd May

Lichens: Looking at Small Things

The Old Courthouse, Shap CA10 3NL

 Join Pete Martin, one of the founders of Cumbria Lichen and Bryophyte Group. He is fascinated by the patterns lichens make, the stories they tell and the questions they raise.

Pete will talk about how to use a hand lens; discuss how we think lichens work and how we start to tell them apart; introduce 5 types of lichen that everyone in Cumbria should know.  It’ll be good preparation for the walk at Naddle a few days later if you are able to join that event as well.

Doors open 7pm              Talk starts at 7.30

Opportunity for Q & A

Spaces limited – please book

 The talk is free to attend – but please make a donation, if you can, on the evening.
