LNHG walk on Sustrans route from Barcaldine – 19 January

from the Lorn Natural History Group facebook eventВ 

January’s field trip takes us along a stretch of the Caledonia Way, aka the Sustrans Cycle Track. We’ll start at Sutherland’s Grove and walk in the direction of the former Sea Life Centre. We will be mainly looking at lichens and winter fungi, plus anything else that is around.

We can expect to see many fine old trees with lichens of the Lobarion community. We will certainly see our Species of the Month, Common Dog Lichen, and can look for other types of dog lichen to compare it with. We may find some Birdsnest Orchid (in its winter form), and will try to add one or two new names to our humongous cycle track plant list which stands at at least 354 (will check exact number in time for trip).

Date and time: Sat 19 Jan, 10.00 a.m.
