Plantlife Members, discover the wonders of lichens with experts Dr Oliver Moore and Dave Lamacraft.
Lichens are literally everywhere. Growing on every continent and in some of the most extreme environments on earth, imagine the stories they could tell us if they could talk.
Having spent decades getting to know lichens, Plantlife specialists Dave and Oliver are going to speak for them, sharing the fascinating and surprising stories some common, and more rare species tell us about the places they are growing.

Dr Oliver Moore is happiest exploring the rainforests of his adopted home Scotland. An accomplished storyteller, Oliver champions the the smallest of the rainforest’s plants (mosses and liverworts), and inspires others to care for them as much as he does.
Whether rare or common, Dave Lamacraft loves all lichens. Often found with his nose pressed against trees and rocks, he can find hidden rareties in the smallest nooks and crannies. Dave’s passion has inspired countless others over the years to bring management to woodlands and other habitats that safeguards the future of these enthralling organisms.
