BLS Events List

Below is a listing of forthcoming events organised by, or relevant to, the British Lichen Society - field meetings, workshops, committee meetings etc. Please note that only those meetings shown as BLS meetings are put on by the society and covered by our insurance. All other meetings are the responsibility of their organiser. Requests for events to be added to the Events Calendar should be sent to the BLS Field Meetings Secretary, email

Most BLS meetings and workshops are open to all members and prospective members, regardless of level of experience. All that is required is enthusiasm about lichens! Occasionally a meeting is targeted to a particular, more specialised group, but that will be made clear in the information provided for that event. Local groups also organise field trips, etc, which may not always be listed here - usually good for beginners.
