Local workshop on lichen ecology
AN unusual workshop is being held at Shian Wood in Benderloch researching the properties of lichen.
The workshop will be run by Plantlife, a charity working to protect wild plants and their habitats, and to build an understanding of the vital role they play in everyone’s lives.
They organise a series of walks and other events at locations in Scotland and throughout the UK. The workshop, led by lichenologist, Andy Acton, is an introduction to the ecology of lichens.
The event will take place at Shian Wood, at Benderloch on Saturday, October 3, between 10am and 4pm.
