The Lichens of Copeland Forest  by Troy McMullin

For anyone who came out to Troy’s lichen workshop in the fall of 2011, you will know that lichens are complex ecosystems unto themselves which Troy describes as the coral reefs of the forest. They filter air, and are highly sensitive to air pollution.  This means  most urban centres have few, if any, lichens.  We were fortunate to have Troy undertake a study of the lichens of Copeland Forest, and as a result of that study he has produced the first-ever published paper on lichens in Simcoe County.   He will be presenting the results in what is sure to be a fascinating discussion that you won’t want to miss.     Registration is free, but we would like to get an idea of numbers in advance so please contact Dorthea at  dorthea(at)couchconservancy.ca  or call the office 705-326-1620 .
