A typical session program
1. Arrive and chat / test your pics with Screenshare
3. Three talks of 2-6 minutes, each followed by questions/comments. Both Beginners and intermediates encouraged to give a talk. Can be on species, habitats, techniques, art.
4. Ten min Break
5. Notice board - publicise events etc
6. Two to four people share photos (c. 2 each) and rest of groups can give comments
We benefit from:-
Seeing specimens up close
Hearing suggestions from more experienced people in the group
Hearing the words used to describe lichen features - soralia, prothallus etc
Giving talks so we have to prepare pictures, use vocabulary, make it accessible to beginners
Learning to use zoom
We very much welcome more advanced people dropping in from time to time.
Note: we currently have space in the Wednesday morning sessions but the Tuesday evening Sessions are almost full. If more volunteer leaders/helpers could be found we could open a session on a different evening.
