Lichens - Making the Invisible Visible

You are here

Lichen workshop

This free workshop is an opportunity to learn about lichens (basic ID and ecology) and how to run a simple exploratory survey about lichens and local air quality.

We will go on a whirlwind tour through the what, where and how of lichens, with a chance to delve into the wonderful world of lichens first hand (inside activity using hand lenses and a presentation), before heading outside to have a go at running the 'Making the Invisible Visible' air quality survey.

24 February, 1-4pm, at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
