These are the pages of the Western Canada Bryophyte and Lichen Interest Group. We are a self help group with a membership of 140+ comprising people with a common interest in bryophytes and lichens. We conduct bryophyte and lichen inventories throughout Western Canada (usually in beautiful places) and we welcome anyone who wants to come along and contribute or learn. We usually have a workshop in the spring. Our emphasis is on sociable learning.

Rod Seppelt (one of our most remote members who lives in Tasmania) sent the exerpt below for our website. I agree it's one of those magical finds when you see one. Many thanks Rod View Here


I'm organizing a spring excursion in the Kootenays in the Spring. I'll email folks of the mailing list with details.
