Seven members attended. The trip started at Community Living Place at 10am with a review of the biology of Lichens. As a framework for identification in the field, we then reviewed the seven Lichen classifications described in Pojar and MacKinnon’s Plants of the Pacific Northwest Coast.
The group viewed examples of lichens in each of the seven groups and examples of lichen features such as apothecia, soredia and isidia. We then carpooled to Haslam Lake and viewed many varieties of lichens found at the site. The trip was led by ourselves and concluded at 12:00 noon.
