Interested in lichens? Do you want to know what lichens are, where they grow, how they reproduce, and how to identify them? If so, this is the workshop for you! Shelly Benson, Sonoma County lichenologist, will enlighten you with the biology, ecology, and identification of these amazing organisms. As President of the California Lichen Society, Shelly has been studying lichens for the past 16 years. She earned her MS degree from the University of Northern British Columbia where she studied lichens growing in the treetops of old growth forests in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
