BLS AUTUMN MEETING 2017 – Epping Forest

6th September 2017, 20:00 to 10th September 2017 Afternoon

Event Description:

Wednesday 6th (evening) to Sunday 10th (afternoon), September 2017

local organiser – John Skinner


Epping Forest is due for a re-survey - last looked at in 2003 by Peter James and Linda Davies when 64 species were recorded. Records going back to 1784 show that the forest’s lichen flora has mirrored the changes in air quality and composition over the years. Many changes can expected to be found on this Society visit.

A room in the Field Studies Council field centre has been booked for evening use on Wed, Thur, Fri and Sat.

This is at: Epping Forest Field Centre, Paul's Nursery Road, High Beach, Loughton, Essex IG10 4AF.

Telephone: 020 8502 8500

The meeting will convene at 8.00pm on Wenesday 6th September at the Epping Forest Field Centre for an introductory talk.

There being no suitable group accommodation in the area attendees will have to make their own arrangements.

Meeting details and a list of some possible accommodation will be sent out to those interested in attending the meeting.

To indicate an interest in the meeting email Steve Price, the Field Meetings Secretary, on fieldmeetings@britishlichensociety.org.uk or by post to Woodlands, Combs Road, Combs, High Peak SK23 9UP.
