CALS is putting out the call to all members and friends for your best lichen photos that we will arrange into a 2014 calendar! Please submit small format photographs to Christine Walker at Christine@californialichens.org by July 1, 2013. When all entries are collected, we’ll sort the photos by their visual impact and our ability to caption them in detail. If you have identified the lichen, please let us know, but don’t hesitate to send photos of undetermined lichens. We’ll do our best to place them as long as you let us know where the photo was taken. A committee including internationally renowned nature and lichen photographer Stephen Sharnoff will make the final decision. When the winners have been chosen, we’ll come back to them for a high resolution image which will be placed with a credit to the photographer in the calendar that we hope will grace the shelves of may gift and book stores and raise awareness about the incredible, diverse world of lichens.
