Shelly Benson, president of the California Lichen Society (CALS), has been studying lichens for the past 14 years. She received her M.S. degree from the University of Northern British Columbia, Canada, in 2001 where she studied lichen ecology. Shelly has conducted several lichen inventories in the Bay Area with CALS, and is interested in the use of lichens as indicators for air quality and climate change.
Lichens are literally found all around us, growing in nearly every habitat and on almost any surface. Ms. Benson will be teaching a workshop on lichens here at the Rod Shippey Hall at HREC on October 19th, 2013... 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The course fee is $60 per person. To register please contact:
