Regular readers of this blog or subscribers to it will be aware that occasionally we offer Wildlife Training Courses on a range of subjects to local aspiring naturalists who take an interest in the Humberhead Levels.

The Executive are please to announce that Prof Mark Seaward is to provide “An Introduction to Lichens” on Friday 29 March 2019. 

Booking is essential to secure a place.  Please book early to avoid disappointment.


The course is aimed at people with an interest in natural history and keen to get to make a start in the identification of Lichens.

The workshop aims to provide students with an introduction to the fascinating world of lichens, through a series of talks, discussions and practical field work.  It is possible to attend just the morning talk if preferred.  The field trip will be local to the venue and will take in variety of substrates where assemblages of lichens can be found.

Students should wear stout footwear and bring a hand lens if they possess one, if not some will be available to borrow on the day.

Refreshments and lunch are provided.  A contribution of £10 towards costs of room hire, refreshments and lunch is requested.  Any student(s) in full time education are advised to make this known when contacting and booking a place.  Likewise anyone with any special dietary issue is likewise advised to make this known when booking.

Please contact for more information and to book a place.

Forum publications will be available, including special offers.

Prof Seaward is also bringing natural history books for sale with the proceeds going towards his God’s Acre Project.
