About

This 3 hour workshop is aimed at anyone who wanders in the Great Outdoors and would like to find out a little more about the oft overlooked wonders that are lichens.

With over 1700 varieties identified in the UK and 18,000 worldwide these fabulous little organisms really are one of natures most neglected wonder.

Symbiotic, ancient, vital - used as food, to trace the movement of mountains, to measure the quality of our air - and found everywhere. Lichens are the dominant species for 8% of the worlds land.

The workshop will take the form of a walk through the wonderful little visited valley of High Borrowdale nr Tebay. We'll look at different types of lichens, where they grow, how to identify them & what they are used for, now, by ancient man and down the centuries between.

I'll be providing everything you need for the day - you'll just need to be able to keep yourself warm, dry and enthusiastic!
