A typical session program

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

7. Discussion


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.
