About Lichens NS
LichensNS aims to facilitate interest in and the exchange of information on lichens and lichen conservation in Nova Scotia. It provides a central point for informing members about lichen education opportunities, bioblitzes, lichen identification sessions and the status of lichen species at risk (SAR). Non-profit and non-governmental, LichensNS encourages the public and professionals to learn more about lichens and their habitats and to share information about the provincial lichen flora. We seek to maintain and promote high standards in field lichenology. The model for LichensNS is Northwest Lichenologists, an association which operates on the west coast of the United States and Canada.
