The Amazing World of Lichens

This event has passed.

Are you interested in lichens? Do you want to know what they are, where they grow, how they reproduce, and why they are important? Then this is the workshop for you! In this introductory workshop, you will learn the basics of lichen biology and ecology. We will focus on recognizing the different lichen growth forms and the various lichen structures that are used to differentiate between species. The workshop includes a classroom lecture, hands-on demonstrations exhibiting lichen structures, and a walk through the garden to observe lichens in their natural habitats.

Please bring lunch.
