LICHENS…these mysterious organisms have fascinated people for years. Not a plant, not a fungus, but a surprisingly elegant combination of the two. Lichens are also an excellent opportunity to engage students in citizen science research in your schoolyard.

Spend the weekend delving into the enchanting world of lichens as we learn their basic ecology, identification, and natural history during this field-based teacher workshop. Participants will practice methods for setting up a Lichen Monitoring project back in their schoolyard. Workshop lasts from Friday supper to Sunday lunch.

Cost: Thanks to a generous grant from Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the workshop is available for K-12 teachers and non-formal educators for only $75. This price includes: Lodging, meals, instruction and materials. 

Space is limited, so register early! We have space for 20 educators.
