Join Naturalist Educator Stephen Bucklin on a walk to learn about lichens. These incredible symbiotic organisms (part fungus, part algae, put simply) are an often overlooked and important part of our ecosystem. This two-hour guided walk will give you hands-on experience observing lichens in their habitat, learning about their growth forms, structures and ecology. Hand lenses are recommended for appreciating the minute details of lichens, and will be available for borrowing.
