Event Description:

Devon Lichen Group - Introduction to Coastal Lichens (Torrs Walk, Ilfracombe)

A Frank Dobson Commemoration Meeting - this is one of the many meetings being held across the country in August to commemorate Frank.

An introductory event to coastal lichens, delivered by Maxine Putnam and John Skinner (local lichenologists) at Torrs Walk, Ilfracombe in North Devon. This area has been well recorded in the past, but the site serves well to provide an introduction to those interested in coastal lichens.

Meet at the National Trust car park (Torrs Park, Ilfracombe EX34 8AZ - SS 5116 4745). Torrs Car Park, EX34 8AZ is also very close. We will be following the coastal path which is rather uneven ground. Much of the route is north-facing and can be surprisingly cold. Bring packed lunch.
