The SITA Tayside Biodiversity Action Fund is funding a Lichen Churchyard Workshop at Kirkton of Collace Church on the 8th September. Please see the Conference Poster
Scottish Churchyards are a very important refuge for lichens. They often contain a wide range of rock types and other habitats which can lie undisturbed for decades and centuries. These habitats can become colonised by a wide range of lichens – sometimes over 100 species in a single churchyard. Some of these lichens can be rare and threatened. This workshop will be an introduction to how to identify the basic lichen forms; the affects of lichens on monuments; why lichens are important and how we can manage churchyards for them.
