BLS Surrey Field Meeting in memory of Frank Dobson

Event Type
BLS Field Meetings & Workshops (Open)
Start date
Event Description:

As part of a month of activities to celebrate the contributions of Frank Dobson, this is a special one-day commemorative field meeting in Surrey where Frank did so much lichen recording.

Time and full details to follow.

Members and guests are invited to explore lichens in and around Hampton Park with kind permission of the owner. The old trees in the open park areas and on ancient boundaries within the park are of especial interest. There will also be an opportunity to visit nearby Puttenham Common which has acid grasslands and young woodland and permission is being sought to look at lichens in Seale Churchyard. These sites provide a wide and interesting mosaic of habitats to explore. The meeting will be an excellent way for everyone, from expert to beginner, to celebrate Frank’s life by contributing valuable records and by learning from others.
