Field Trip – Lichen Walk – The Heath Pond, Petersfield
We will have a very gentle walk around the pond to point out a number of lichens including the three main structures. A number of hand lens and Field Studies Council fold-out charts will be available to borrow.
Most of the lichens will be widespread but, hopefully, we’ll see at least a couple of more unusual ones. We will have a couple of chemicals and a UV torch with us to show various reactions.
Meet Point: Outside the Plump Duck (the cafe next to the pond).
There is on-the-road parking near the meet point and a free car park next to the Heath Pond (approx. five minutes walk from the meeting point)
