Introduction to lichen

Join Plantlife and Keswick Museum for an introductory session to the lichens of Borrowdale. The morning will focus on the basics in lichen biology, ecology and identification with access to microscopes . After lunch, we will go to a Borrowdale woodland (car share) and put into practice everything learnt throughout the morning.
