Event Type: Nature Exploration

This favorite walk will focus on the miniature world of mosses and lichens. Expect to spend time bent over examining the subtle and often amazing features of these abundant but usually unnoticed organisms. Avoiding hardcore identification and terminology, we will look at their many adaptations for thriving in a world full of microhabitats in an attempt to understand their role in the larger ecosystem. Bring a hand lens if you have one, otherwise we'll provide a loaner. Meet at the stone bench in front of the picnic pavillion.
